Mechanism of Shoulder Injury In Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA). The driver of the automobile is shown holding the steering wheel tightly with arms locked. Directional arrows show the impact force from the front end of the vehicle traveling through the arm to the shoulder joint, which absorbs the brunt of the trauma. Two views of the shoulder joint contrast normal anatomy with the typical post-accident injuries from a head-on impact.
