Nichol Lynn Barker Pahlck's 2002 Honda Accord was involved in a "crash that should not have been fatal," according to Florida authorities.

A large number of Honda vehicles have been recalled because they contain dangerous airbag inflators made by Takata. The shrapnel-hurling inflators have been recalled in over 37 million vehicles (and counting).
