&lt;p&gt;We present a rare injury pattern of the pelvis that has not been published prior to this report in the literature. We describe in detail the injury sustained by a young male who was involved in a motor vehicle collision and suffered multiple injuries, including blunt head and chest trauma; pelvic and as well as long bone fractures. The injury pattern did not fall into the currently available classification systems and thus motivated us to design a classification system and suggest an approach to management as we have successfully managed our case.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
