Pelvic fractures in pregnancy are a relatively rare event. Special consideration needs to be considered when evaluating these patients. We present a case of a 15-year-old pregnant teenager who was an unrestrained passenger in a motor vehicle collision who sustained an open-book pelvic fracture. Care of the patient requires a coordination of care between the patient and the fetus.
