HI there,

Looking at the pics there is no evidence of frontal impact, air bags are triggered by sensors that are sensitive to rapid deceleration, (decelerometers) in a roll over this forces is insufficient to trigger deployment, some with side impact airbags can deploy in roll over, but in your case the incident although enough to do considerable damage was insufficient to deploy the SRS.
