The administration's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) "is now aware of six crashes with significant collision related damage events involving Hyundai and Kia models where air bags failed to deploy in frontal crashes", which killed four people and injured six, it said in document on its website.

Four people died and several were injured in the collisions.

The Associated Press reports the problem is thought to be an electrical short circuit with the component that controls the air bag. NHTSA now wants to know if other automakers used the same computer.

The NHTSA's investigation will "evaluate the scope of Hyundai's recall", confirm whether Kia is using similar ZF-TRW computers and look into other factors that could have caused airbag malfunctions.

Former US envoy says North Korea surprised Trump said yes to talks
The news of a possible meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un triggered a heated debate among Chinese scholars who follow the North Korea nuclear crisis.

All of the accidents involved either 2011 Hyundai Sonatas or 2012-2013 Kia Fortes, according to documents posted on the NHTSA's website Saturday. Less than a month ago, Hyundai announced the recall of almost 155,000 2011 Hyundai Sonatas due to the risk that a short circuit could prevent the air bag deploying in the event of a crash.

Hyundai spokesman Jim Trainor said the South Korean automaker is aware of reports of two deaths in its vehicles, which he said occurred in head-on collisions at extremely high rates of speed.

'We certainly would do everything we can to help our customers, ' Trainor said.
