Both front airbags deployed on our Modus. I escaped with a bruised chest and arm, and a graze to my forearm from the airbag. My wife was more seriously injured - but only bruising. The hospital were concerned about her having internal injuries, but luckily this wasn't the case.

The Supra driver was trapped for a time and suffered a broken leg.

As the accident is subject to legal action (outside the UK) I won't post further pictures or information at this time, but suffice to say that as driver of our car, the police do not hold me in any way responsible and will charge the other driver in due course!

All in all, we were very lucky, and will buy another Modus if this one is written off.
