Exclusive: Takata air bag recall to cover 5 million more U.S. vehicles

U.S. safety regulators and major automakers are expected to announce on Friday a new recall of about 5 million vehicles for potentially defective Takata air bags in the wake of the death of a driver of a Ford pickup truck last month.

The Dec. 22 death of a Georgia man in South Carolina would be the 10th worldwide, and the first to occur in a vehicle that was not made by Honda Motor Co. A Ford Motor Co spokesman said the automaker is aware of the reported death.
