Abstract

In a road traffic accident, identification of the driver with his contributory factors (alcohol, drugs, diseases, deformities and licence) is a main issue in medico-legal examination. When all passengers are dead and have been removed by lay people it is the main practical problem. Recognition and evaluation of injury patterns with vehicle damage is the solution. This case illustrates the identification of the driver by ex-articulation of right big toe nail.
