Motor vehicle crashes (MVCs) are the most common cause of serious injury (Healthy People, 2010). Moffat et al. (1990) estimated that, in 1985 alone, 15,300 pelvic fractures occurred during MVCs in the United States. Since the early 1990’s, the incidence of pelvic fractures has significantly increased (Inaba et al., 2004), which is alarming since more patients die from pelvic fracture than from any other skeletal injury (Cryer, 1996).
