I was driving my car at 45 mph when another car cut in front of me and we connected. I pushed her car over a stop sign. My face and body hit the drivers window causing a neck and back injury and 9000 damage to my car that had 2300 miles on it last Jan. 17th. Why did my air bags did not go off to protect me?

The contact owns a 2017 Ford Escape. While the contact's spouse was driving 70 mph, the front driver side tire blew out and the vehicle crashed into a guardrail. The contact was unsure of what warning indicators were illuminated. The contact stated that the front driver and passenger side air bags deployed and the seat belts engaged; however, the rear passenger side seat belt failed to engage. The driver sustained a fractured sternum and contusion, the front passenger sustained bruised ribs and a scraped elbow, and the rear passenger sustained a fractured sternum and collar bone, which required medical attention. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed, but was not diagnosed for the seat belt failure. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 16,296.
