Over two years ago, my senior citizen dad crashed our X100D into our garage wall. Within five minutes of the collision with our house, Tesla Emergency Roadside Services called my phone, informing me that their system had detected a frontal impact and airbag activation. Our X100D was subsequently totalled, and replaced with another, almost identical X100D.
Three days ago, in our replacement X100D, I crashed into another motorist who ran her left turn only RED light. She was the last car to come through after a perceptible gap in cars completing that same left turn. The other vehicle's airbags did deploy, but mine did not. Could this be the reason why I never got a call from Tesla Emergency even though my car and the other were blocking a very busy intersection? I was quite disappointed to not hear from Tesla to inquire after my condition, but I'm thinking now it was because that my airbags never activated.
I'm pretty certain that our second X100D will be totaled too.
I am completely unhurt and doing well. The other motorist, the one I suspect will be declared mostly at fault, did not fare quite as well. At length she was eventually helped out of her car and bundled into an ambulance.
