Takata recall. I was traveling on us 77 in virgina when the traffic can to a stop due to a merging arrow. I merged and stop. I was rear ended by the car behind me as it did not stop. My car hit the car in front of me and then rolled over. The air bags did not deploy anywhere in the car. I believe the driver's air bag should have been enabled after hitting the car in front of me. I believe the side air bags should have been enabled when the car flipped over.

Air bag failed to deploy during head on collision driving about 70mph on the 1604 hwy animal ran across I swerved out of the way to avoid hitting it but lost control on the grass and went head on into a pole as I tried to steer the car from hitting I spinned out of control after the impact then landed on the access road. Front of vehicle got pushed in but not one air bag deployed during the whole incident Nissan excuse is I didn't hit the car correctly which I'm not quite sure what would be the correct way to crash a vehicle for future reference.
