Front Air Bag light is on. Rather than taking it to a Ford Dealership to diagnose issue and charging me an arm and leg telling me the vehicle is out of warranty as in the past I wanted to report this and request direction from you as to what is my next step"?? Can you assist me"

My 15 year old daughter was driving my truck when someone slammed on brakes in front of us to turn, with no turn signal. We hit this persons vehicle in a 55 mph zone at 55 mph and then hit the ditch. None of our airbags deployed. With the damage that occured, I would think a sensor would have triggered. This needs to be brought to the attention of Ford Motor Company.
