On July 13th in a two-car crash near Sydney, a man died after being hit in the neck by a small metal fragment. Police at the scene concluded the likely cause was the Takata air bag inflator metal canister that, at least in their opinion, spewed shrapnel at the driver. The car was a 2007 Honda CR-V SUV that collided with a Toyota Celica at an intersection.
“Honda says it recalled 2007 CR-Vs in Australia to replace a defective Takata driver’s air bag inflator. It was unclear whether the man’s vehicle had been repaired.”
I have no information of any accidents in Iowa where the passengers or drivers were injured or killed by the airbag. At this time we have no cases, but are open to the litigation in Iowa.
