Airbag recalibration may be linked to some accident fatalities

The recalibration of airbags in some 2005 Chrysler minivans meant to prevent potentially dangerous late deployments may be responsible for some fatalities when airbags fail to deploy, reports Mike Casey of The Kansas City Star. The family of the late Brooke Katz is suing the automaker because the airbag in her 2005 Dodge Caravan failed to deploy in a front-end crash. Both she and her unborn child were killed in the accident.
