The latest incident is another blamed on ruptured airbag inflators in an old Honda Accord.
Automakers have recalled tens of millions of vehicles equipped with dangerous Takata airbag inflators, but the death toll continues to rise as many vehicles have not yet received replacement parts.
Honda believes a ruptured airbag inflator likely caused another death in a Florida accident involving a 2002 Accord, bringing the global official death toll up to 19 victims, according to Reuters.
The crash reportedly occurred last when a 34-year-old driver was killed in a head-on impact with a 1999 Pontiac Firebird near St. Petersburg. An official cause of death has not been announced, but the ruptured inflators are known to cause serious shrapnel injuries as pieces of metal are launched through the cabin.
Honda says it sent no less than 10 recall notices to the current registered owner, but the vehicle had not yet been brought in for repairs. Florida is among the most dangerous states for the oldest vehicles, as failures are caused by humidity over time.
The debacle has sent Takata into a financial tailspin and led to a recent bankruptcy filing.
