Family Receives $2.7 Million After Man Killed by Defective Airbag

The family of a Montgomery man has been awarded a $2.7 million settlement after it was revealed that he was killed by a defective Takata airbag in a June 2022 crash.

Tocarious Johnson’s death was initially being investigated as a homicide after authorities believed he was shot. However, police said an autopsy showed the 20-year-old died from his injuries he sustained when the 2010 Dodge Charger he was driving left the roadway and crashed.
