• A road fatality recorded last February has been attributed to the presence of faulty Takata airbags.
• The victim was driving a 2002 Honda Accord.
• U.S. authorities are urging owners of unrepaired vehicles to get the fixes done as soon as possible.
Sadly, we can add another victim to the list of those who died as a result of shrapnel from defective airbags made by now-defunct manufacturer Takata. U.S. authorities confirmed on Friday that the death of the driver of a 2002 Honda Accord last February in Bowling Green, Kentucky, was linked to the now-infamous airbag.
