MOTOR-CAR ACCIDENTS DURING PREGNANCY

Motor-car accidents in the State of Victoria in the years 1973 to 1975 inclusive resulted in five maternal and 27 fetal deaths. Severe maternal injury only occurred in women not wearing seat belts; however, fetal death may well have been due to seat belt injury in 14 subjects. The commonest genital tract injury was placental abruption. However, uterine rupture was observed on three occasions and these cases are described in detail. /TRRL/
