OK, read that backwards, thought he'd hit head on, then slid sideways to the other side. That's what I get for trying to quick read while at work. Side impacts should not deploy the bags aither (unless equipped with side curtains I think).

Agree that the sensor only reads frontal deceleration, normally wont deploy from a rear end impact.
