One of two reasons:

1) The change in velocity over time was not sufficient to trigger the airbag module.

2) The airbag circuit was defeated, defective, or something similar.

Not my experience. I have seen car rashes that I thought were fatals as I drove to the scene, only to find no injuries, or very minor ones because the bags deployed.
