RONALD Smith, 59, died in a road traffic accident. The crash did not kill him. The airbag in his Vauxhall Insignia did. The crash caused a window to break. The glass punctured the airbag. Mr Smith breathed in the airbag’s fumes and died.

At South Tyneside Coroner Terence Carney, his widow, June Smith, says:

“I knew from the very beginning that it was the airbag. I just knew. It’s just not fair that you have to lose someone because of something that is meant to save a life.”
