When police got to the scene of a minor car accident in Alhambra, California in September 2013, they thought the driver, Hai Ming Xu, had been shot in the face.
A similar conclusion was reached by Orlando police responding to an accident a year later -- they believed that the driver, Hien Thi Tran, had been the victim of a stabbing that might have caused the accident.
Court records and police reports show two other fatalities tied to the exploding airbags, which were also both in Honda ( ) cars:
- Ashley Parkham, killed in a 2009 accident in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
- Gurjit Rathore, killed in Richmond, Virginia on Christmas Eve, 2009.
