I was in a front end collision on 7/30/10. The car of the driver who hit me had her airbags deploy, while mine did not. The impact to my car was severe enough that the radiator support had to be replaced along with the bumper headlight and hood. I was going 20 - 25 mph and the other diver was doing approximately the same speed.
