Question about air bag deployment-

I had a semi lose a tire cap a couple of months ago in front of me. There was no way to avoid impact with the cap (long story). Impacted at somewhere around 70 mph centered on the front wheel. The cap was curled in a circle at impact and wrapped around the fender, smacked squarely into the lower fairing and all the good stuff underneath.

Does anyone know if the bag would have deployed in this instance?

Just curious as I managed to roll through the situation without going down, was just a "thump". If deployment would be possible in this situation, I'm sure I would have gone down due to loss of control of the bike.
