A fracture of the ankle may occur to a person involved in a motor vehicle collision. A fracture involving the talus, a bone that makes up the lowest part of the ankle joint, is usually apparent in people involved in a motor vehicle collision. Notwithstanding, this injury can also be seen in victims of falls or snowboarders.
The talus is plays a large role in connecting the foot, leg and body. This particular part of the ankle also helps us transfer weight and pressure evenly across the ankle.
