When trauma from a car accident or other serious accident causes a break in one of the bonds of the head, it is called a skull fracture. A skull fracture can be as small as a hairline fracture or it can be a depressed fracture, either of which can injure the brain. Given that bleeding is often associated with these injuries, it can be difficult in some cases to see and locate a skull fracture.
