I don't think the air bags would go off if it were hit from the side. They need actual frontal collision wihile moving type of forces to actuate.
I thought the same thing. But that front hood isn't cracked/bent at all. It'* kind of pushed to the side. And a lot of the front was taken out in the crash. If it was hit hard enough from the side the sensors had to be damaged causing the airbags to go off I bet someone else may have run a light and clipped his front end while going through an intersection.
I think you are most likely right. The car had to be moving, and got clipped real good.
Ya, the Ferrari was definitely moving when it happened. Maybe even the Ferrari ran a light.
