The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences concluded that Carlos Solis had suffered no other serious injuries and his death was accidental. The report became public late last week.

The 35-year-old Solis, who was traveling with an 11-year-old cousin at the time of the wreck, died January 18 in the suburb of Spring. His 2002 Honda Accord had a driver’s air bag made by Takata Corp. of Japan. Those can inflate with too much force, causing them to blow apart a metal canister and send shrapnel into the passenger compartment.
