(Reuters) – A truck that was transporting Takata Corp <7312.T> air bag inflators and propellants at the center of a global recall exploded in Texas last week, killing one woman and injuring four other people, the auto parts supplier said on Monday.

The truck, operated by a subcontractor, was traveling to a Takata warehouse in Eagle Pass, Texas, early on Aug. 22 when an accident occurred, causing an explosion that incinerated a nearby home, local media reports said.

The truck “was involved in an accident,” Takata said in a statement on Monday. “According to preliminary reports, the accident caused a fire, which led to an explosion.”

Texas state officials did not immediately return calls for comment early on Monday.
People sleep peacefully in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would do them harm.
