Honda Confirms 20th Takata Airbag Death

Officials with Honda Motor Company confirmed another death caused by an exploding Takata airbag inflator. Honda said the person died on July 10 during a crash in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The unidentified person, who was in a 2004 Honda Civic, is the 20th death worldwide caused by Takata’s defective airbag inflators.
