Suicide & homicide by automobile are attempted more often than is generally recognized. Awareness of this problem on the part of police & surgeons who treat victims of auto wrecks should aid in detection of such acts. This should facilitate early psychiatric evaluation & treatment of these persons who are dangerous to themselves & often to other drivers.
