Description

The Department of Transportation is investigating Knoxville, Tenn. based ARC Automotive for potentially manufacturing faulty air bag inflators. The inflators can become clogged over time, investigators believe, causing the driver to be hit with shrapnel in a low-speed crash. WBIR 10News tracked down and interviewed a victim who was nearly killed in such a crash. Her complaint sparked the nationwide recall investigation.
