Report on airbag failures earns accolades for Star

An investigation by The Kansas City Star on airbags has been recognized by the Society of American Business Editors and Writers in its Best in Business Journalism Contest.
Reporters Mike Casey and Rick Montgomery, whose series exposed the dangers of airbags that do not inflate, were among the winners in the projects category.
“Fatal Failures,” published in October, triggered a congressional investigation. The reporters found that at least 1,400 drivers and front-seat passengers died from 2001 through 2006 in front-impact crashes involving vehicles whose airbags did not deploy.
The 13th annual contest recognized the best business news reporting during 2007. Awards were  presented April 27 in Baltimore at the society’s 45th annual conference.
