F-350 6-cyl

Our vehicle was traveling on paved highway just South of waukomis, ok, at approx. 6:45am. A pickup pulling a stock trailer was traveling South and crossed over in front of our driver's vehicle, and to avoid a head-on collision with this vehicle, our driver took to the bar ditch and as a result hit a road sign post and also hit a 3" steel post that was set approx. 3 foot deep in concrete, the impact was dead center on the front end of our truck's bumper, and it totaled our vehicle. The airbags did not deploy on our vehicle. Our driver fortunately was not injured. My question is why did the airbags not deploy?

Vehicle is a 2001 Ford F150 pickup involved in a head on into a tree due to bad road conditions, vehicle was going approximately. 15-20 mph when the vehicle hit a tree, and the air bags did not deploy, the driver plunged into windshield which shattered. This resulted in head injury, driver also suffered hip and knee damage which should take several months to heal. Vehicle suffered major damage to front end and frame windshield and dash board. Vehicle currently in body shop damage appraised at approximately.$8000 major complaint is obviously concerning air bags not deploying which I believed caused the extensive physical injuries. I intend to contact Ford Motor Company.

I reported air bag readiness light on dash was on to the dealer service department on 4/3/2001 and brought truck in to service on 4/4/2001 I was told that a sensor on the ABS system was not working and that when the air bag light was on the air bag would not operate I was also informed that the truck had a recall and parts were not in stock I should bring it back in 3 days. My wife called Ford and they told her they mailed notices on March 8th 2001 about the recall they did not admit that their was a failure in the sensors!!!
