A Malaysian safety official says a woman has died after the airbag in her Honda Civic ruptured in a minor collision.

The incident Sunday came days after Honda Malaysia announced an additional recall of more than 145,000 vehicles to replace defective front passenger airbag inflators.

Fire and rescue official Rosdi Hainan said Monday that the steering-wheel airbag had ruptured when he arrived at the site of the accident, and the victim was bleeding from her chest. Rosdi says the woman died a short time later.

There has been a massive recall involving millions of vehicles around the world because of faulty inflator and propellant devices that may deploy improperly in an accident, shooting out metal fragments that can injure or kill.
