Under these conditions the airbags may not deploy. They're mostly designed for a direct impact, not a rollover. There's accelerometers mounted at various positions in the body to control the airbag deployment, which is very violent. An airbag deploying when not needed can cause injury just as bad as an accident itself, so it's important that they're controlled carefully.
We once spun out bad on the interstate in wet conditions, doing several 180 degree and then a full 360 degree spin. I was surprised how stable our 02 TB was under these conditions.
