A blunt cardiac injury or BCI is an injury to the cardiac tissue from a blunt trauma to the chest.  It usually results from trauma in a motor vehicle accident in which the chest strikes the steering wheel or dashboard of the car.  It can range from being a clinically silent injury with brief arrhythmias or a severe rupture of the cardiac wall, which is almost uniformly fatal.

Sadly, serious traffic accidents occur all the time.  One tragic Sacramento car accident occurred recently that included two fatalities and several injuries in a single family.  A Hyundai Santa Fe driver failed to stop at a stop sign, striking a Chrysler Town and Country, propelling it across the Alta Arden Expressway where it collided with a Toyota Sienna traveling the opposite direction.  Another recent collision in South Sacramento happened when a teenager apparently drove a Dodge Challenger at more than 100 miles per hour, striking a pickup truck and causing the death of the pickup’s two occupants.

But even much less dramatic Sacramento car accidents can result in serious injuries or even death.  The California State Office of Traffic Safety has collected statistics showing particular problems for the Sacramento area for drunk driving, with Sacramento ranking 4th out of 13 major urban areas in the State for alcohol involved accidents and 3rd our of 13 urban areas for collisions resulting from underage drinking.  Sacramento was also 5th out of 13 cites for hit-and-run incident percentages.
