Spontaneous Air Bag Deployment

(2003 Mercedes-Benz E500)
in Baton Rouge, LA on August 01, 2009
Has anyone encountered air bag deployment while driving on interstate and rolling over the grooves that let you know you went over the yellow line without a crash or erratic behavior? I was dodging debris from a dump truck. If so, besides insurance, could Mercedes be liable? I have never heard of this happening. It scared the life out me not to mention could have caused an accident and hurt others.

I have not heard of this but I would contact Mercedes customer service North America and the National Highway and Transport department to see if they are investigating any other instance of this happening.
