Two cases are presented in which automobile collision caused transverse sacral fracture involving neurological elements. The patients were admitted within 2 weeks of each other to the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medicine. An attempt is made to assess the incidence of this condition and its relation to fractured pelvis. A review of the literature was carried out and several points of diagnosis and management are discussed.
