(2) the side airbag, which is in the driver's seat at the exact location of the impact, failed to deploy. i broke my left hand, injured my right shoulder (rotator cuff impingement), and suffered lacerations to both hands. there was substantial damage to the driver's side of the car, including the b-pillar, which is a structural part of the uni-body frame. i have digital photographs of the damage that i can send to nhtsa if you provide me with your e-mail address.
