 Sitting on i-10 stopped when a tractor trailer rear ended me. his speed was 40 miles per and no airbags deployed. the front air bags should have helped me from getting my face cut and prevented my injury. i wish the bags would have worked. we just had the car checked out at the dodge dealer a few months prior. the driver front bag burning me would have been better then the blunt force to my face.

 I was traveling to a t intersection; i was the one who was required to make the left or right hand turn. my brakes stopped working and i went from ~55mph to 45mph over the course of a football field or so. i should have been able to stop completely but that wasn't the case. it was the 2008 caliber srt4. the srt4 has a massive brake kit from the charger and magnum on it which should have made it stop relatively quickly. i mashed my vehicle into another vehicle at the intersection and my airbags did not deploy. i believe there is something wrong with the brakes and airbags on the 2008 caliber srt4. *tr

 My boyfriend and i had a single car accident in my 2008 dodge caliber this past weekend. during the accident we were traveling between 40 and 50 mph in fog and were unaware that the road we were on ended in the shape of a t. we then flew in the air landed and crashed the whole front part of my car. the angle at which we landed was with the front of the car pointed down. the air bags did not deploy. his injuries include 3 chipped molars on the right side of his mouth and a piece of flesh missing from the left side of his mouth. his left jaw is also swollen and he can hardly open his mouth to eat. my injuries include a swollen left knee, both knees are skinned up. my left shoulder as an imprint of my lace shirt on it and is sore to the touch, both my arms are in pain and the left is scrapped. i can't look to either side without having to move my whole body and i can't look up with my neck. my chest, ribs and breast bone are also sore, sore enough in fact that i had to be taken to the emergency room the night after because i had thrown up that morning and it was hurting to breathe and from the stress i either had a seizure or anxiety attack. *tr
