    Well as you can tell from the thread title, my airbags did not go off.

    Worked with insurance, and now FCA called, and emailed for more information.

    They also asked to be in contact with insurance to be able to inspect the truck.

    One of the first things @Polaraco said, was about the airbags not deploying.

    Does anyone have any insight into the newer airbag workings?

    What I can tell you:
    All updates and recalls current as of 2/7/20

    I did have a Go Rhino bumper with Winch on the front. (company has made a statement it does not effect airbags)

    What can I expect from from FCA?

    Will the missing parts from the infamous pothole have any effect?

    Dang!

    Just watched the video if the pictures wasn’t enough, that’s pretty scary!

    Glad you made it out, hope the other(s) were ok too!

    Keep us posted!

    I had my 5 year old son in the backseat and after that accident and we were ok, I decided that I would definitely buy another Ram.

    That’s horrible and so sad he lost his life. The damage done to your truck doesn’t compare to his truck. Glad you and your son are ok!!

    WOW!

    This happens way too often.

    It seems people have become complacent with left turn signals and when they see a green light they just turn not remembering the older style signal system where the left turn must yield to oncoming traffic.

    So glad this was not deadly for either vehicle.
