On 10/28, my daughter was involved in a frontal offset head on collision with a Chevy Silverado. The impact occurred inside of a turning lane where the Chevy was traveling approx. 15 mph, and my daughter began accelerating out of the turn lane at 5-10mph when they collided. The Silverado's airbags deployed, the bmws did not. No front airbags or knee airbags deployed. She hit her head on the steering wheel, while wearing her seatbelt, so this also begs the question, why the seatbelt pretensioners did not hold her back from the steering wheel. BMW 's also come equipped with emergency flashers upon accident, that did not happen either. My impression is that none of the BMW safety systems went into effect during this collision. BMW assist also never called, which again is another touted BMW safety system in all their cars.
