Takata confirms six deaths, 105 injuries due to defective airbags.

Bloomberg News (4/27, Plungis, 3.81M) reports that Federal highway safety regulators (NHTSA) are investigating defective Takata Corp. air-bag inflators that send shards of shrapnel into car occupants when triggered. The story adds that on Monday Sen Bill Nelson (D-FL) said Takata has “confirmed a sixth death as well as 105 injuries” in documents submitted to the Senate Commerce Committee.
