The news stories were a dis-jointed mess but it seems the sequence of events was this: a semi truck carrying Takata air bag inflators was involved in a traffic accident, the truck ran off the road as result of the accident and possibly had a second collision, the truck caught fire, the fire caused the truck and its contents to explode.
A 69 year old woman living in the house where the truck came to rest died as result of the fire and explosion. It took two days to identify her remains from dental records.
Shrapnel from the exploding air bag inflators was found up to a mile away.
Two or Four individuals in a passing vehicle (stories conflict each other) not involved in the accident were all injured by the blast and shrapnel.
Sure feel good having these inflators in two of our three cars. Can I buy replacement units direct from Autoliv?
