    Cervical spine injury is commonly associated with
    road-traffic accidents. The true incidence of cervical
    spine injuries is unknown due to under-reporting of
    such injuries. Cervical spine injury is associated with
    high morbidity and mortality if it is missed. With the
    advancement of imaging modalities, the number of
    missed cervical injuries has reduced. Nevertheless, some
    clinicians are dependent solely on imaging tools to rule
    out cervical spine injury in a trauma victim. We report
    two cases of “near miss” C6 fracture to highlight the
    importance of a detailed clinical history and clinical
    examination with imaging as an adjunct to rule out
    cervical injury.
