Paul mutersbaugh's 2008 Pontiac G-5 was T-boned. He remembers trying to stop the car by pressing the brake, to no avail. The air bags in the back seat did not deploy. After impact, the car caught on fire. The fire spread so quickly that there was only enough time to get the occupants from the back seat out. Not even enough time to save anything in the car. The car burnt to the ground. Nothing but a shell is left. I met a gentleman at the las vegas truck show on June 25th. He said you could send someone out to look at the car to see what happened. The insurance carrier is keeping the car at: Copart salvage yard, lot 13749849, 1475 bluff city blvd., elgin, il. 60120. We would greatly appreciate someone verifying that the air bags did not deploy, the car should never have burnt to the ground with out something being defective with the car and to see if the brakes failed. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
