    Notes: Abstract After collision of a car with the left rearside against a steel mast the 19-year-old front seat passenger was found comatose on the seat. CT imaging showed a depression fracture parietal on the left with an intracerebral haemorrhage on the opposite side. The cause of the injury was unknown to the surgeons at the time of operation. Despite neurosurgical intervention the patient died 24 h after the accident. The post-mortem showed an additional depression fracture at the base of the skull in the right temporal region arousing suspicion of an impalement injury. Only inspection of the car by the forensic pathologists revealed the gas pressure telescopic shock absorber to be the cause of the head injury.
