Complaint - Air Bags, Seat Belts

ON MARCH 24, 2013 MY GIRLFRIEND AND I WERE EAST BOUND ON I 70 GOING TO DENVER AIRPORT TO PICK UP HER MINOR CHILD. AT APPROX. 274 EXIT, MY TRUCK STARTED SLIDING ON ICE AND HIT HEAD ON INTO MEDIAN CONCRETE BARRIER. AT THE SAME TIME I WAS STRUCK BY ANOTHER OUT OF CONTROL VEHICLE AND WAS PUSHED TO THE SHOULDER SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE HITTING THE ON-RAMP GUARD RAIL AT APPROX. 45 MPH HEAD ON. THE PASSENGER SEAT BELT DID NOT LOCK UNTIL AFTER MY GIRLFRIEND HIT THE WINDSHIELD WITH HER HEAD.I HIT THE STEERING WHEEL WITH MY HEAD ALSO. YES, THE MAJOR COMPLAINT IS NONE OF THE AIR BAGS DEPLOYED AFTER HITTING 2 STRUCTURES HEAD ON. THE FIRE DEPT. CUT ALL THE BATTERY LEADS TO KEEP THE AIR BAGS FROM GOING OFF BEFORE LETTING POLICE LOOK INSIDE OR BE TOWED. I CONTACTED FORD WITH MY CONCERN FOR THE AIR BAGS NOT WORKING. THEIR RESPONSE WAS " WHAT DO YOU WANT FORD TO DO"? I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM FORD ASKING FOR INFORMATION THAT WILL TAKE ME FOREVER TO ACCUMULATE. ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF BIG CORPORATIONS NOT CARING ABOUT THE PEOPLE THEIR PRODUCTS FAIL TO PROTECT. THE VEHICLE WAS TOTALED AND I THANK GOD NEITHER OF US WAS SERIOUSLY HURT OR KILLED BECAUSE OF THE AIR BAGS NOT BEING SET OFF BY A DOUBLE HEAD ON IMPACT!!!
