Mesa Driver Killed By Exploding Airbag Inflator
October 8, 2020
MESA, AZ ”“ A faulty airbag inflator has been determined as the cause of a fatal August 20th car accident. The Takata airbag inflator has now killed at least 26 people worldwide and injured more than 200.
According to the Associated Press, the Takata airbag’s inflation is triggered by a small explosion caused by ammonium nitrate. However, the volatile chemical deteriorates when exposed to moisture. This deterioration can cause the triggering explosion to destroy a metal canister and fling its shards into the passenger cabin.
The inflators first started being recalled in December of 2011, Since then, over 100 million Takata inflators have been recalled in what has become the largest automobile recall in American history. Honda and Toyota have both claimed to have sent numerous notices and phone calls to car owners over the years to inform them of the recall.
The driver killed in Mesa was behind the wheel of a 2002 Honda Civic of which he was not the registered owner. No further information regarding his identity has been made public.
The precise location of the incident is not available at this time.
