Honda has confirmed that Carlos Solis of Spring, TX lost his life due to a recalled airbag.
Carlos Solis’ airbag was deployed after a minor traffic accident two weeks ago. The accident caused the airbag inflator to be shattered. As a result, a piece of shrapnel lodged in Mr. Solis’ neck, causing his death.
The current owner purchased the vehicle on April 25, 2014, after the recall was initiated,” said Chris Martin, a spokesman for Honda North America. “And Honda had not yet sent mailed notification to the current owner at the time of the crash.”
