My brother was involved in a fatal crash in a new 2002 Toyota Camry xle, the accident occrured in North Carolina and is being investigated by the highway patrol. The car left the highway and rolled over eventually impacting a tree. The car was equipped with front, side, and side curtain airbags. No airbag deployed in this accident. I believe the lack of airbag deployment was contributory to my brother's death.
