Had an accident now passenger seatbelt and driver's airbag light won't go off

Hi all, earlier today I was in a fender bender, hit from behind kinda hard. When I first started my car after the accident I noticed the driver's airbag and passenger seatbelt lights didn't go off after the initial startup. Then after all the insurance exchange, etc when I went to start my car it stalled for about a minute, then start and both lights were still on. Can anyone offer why these lights are staying on? I won't be able to get the car checked out til Friday and I just want to know my airbag isn't going to deploy out of nowhere while I'm driving. Thanks a bunch!!!

Usually an airbag warning light means that they are not functioning properly, or there is no signal coming to the computer from them.
Maybe, with the accident a sensor got damaged, or even a fuse blowed up. Check your fuse box. But I don't think there is any chance of the airbag to deploy. The warning light comes up when they are deactivated for some reason. So, most likely your airbags have no signal or electricity and they don't return the signal to the computer

Here is how you can check the error codes for the SRS (airbag) ECU, which will tell why the lights are on:

Is it a serious one? Is everyone ok? Just go to the Toyota service center, I am sure they can help you there. But before that, don't forget to call the insurance company and your lawyer if you have one. Otherwise, you can have some problems. In case you don't have it, I recommend you to get one. I remember when I got into an accident, a lawyer from accidenteayuda.com, helped me a lot. I really hope my message will be useful for you, and you will solve your problem. By the way, just be more careful next time. Take care.
