accident GLK 300 4matic no airbags

Was driving 45 MPH and a car to my right ran the red light. I hit her dead center and my airbags in my GLK300 2014 did not deploy. I WAS wearing my seatbelt.
I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where I was kept over night for observation. Does anyone know why my bags did not deploy? This seems to be a problem for MB on this website?
I was told my car is totaled!!

Not sure about that. You have a few small sensors behind the bumper cover that are designed to activate the airbags when these sensors are tripped by something (front end impact).

It is possible that just by the luck of the draw that the sensors were not damaged during the collision. There really needs to be more information to give a decent opinion.

Glad you are OK though, if the airbag did go off you might have had abrasions on the face though, so think glass half full. Gosh did this happen in DC proper? Such a hard city to have nice things in with all the idiots driving Crown Victoria's and Caddys and temp tags with No license, and Insurance.
