Default Re: Unsafe Cars

From The Associated Press 9 February 2015:
---------------------------------------------------------------
An autopsy has found that a metal disc from a defective air bag sliced into a Texas man's neck and killed him after a low-speed car accident last month near Houston. ...His 2002 Honda Accord had a driver's air bag made by Takata Corp. of Japan. Those can inflate with too much force, causing them to blow apart a metal inflator canister and send shrapnel into the passenger compartment. Solis is among six people killed and 64 injured by the inflator mechanisms, which have caused the recalls of 19 million vehicles worldwide and touched off investigations by the U.S. Justice Department and safety regulators.
