“Takata airbags to blame for George Ranch High School student’s death; 10th in U.S.”
“”There is no doubt that the Takata air bag inside her 2002 Honda Civic failed and fired a sharp piece of jagged metal into her
throat at point-blank range, from less than two feet away,” Sheriff Troy Nehls said. “Our investigation revealed that the cause of
death was blunt force trauma to the right neck area, which severed her jugular vein and carotid artery.””
This happened about three miles away from my house. I’ve never been a big fan of airbags since I wear my seat belt and force others
in the car / truck to do so.
We got the wife’s 2005 Honda Civic airbag replaced last fall due to the recall. Sure am glad she did that now.
