Introduction: Sacral fractures are commonly associated with pelvic ring fractures due to high-energy mechanisms of injury. There are very few long-term studies of pelvic fractures worldwide documenting the behavior of these injuries in the long run. Aims and Objectives: To study different types of sacral fractures and sacro-iliac joint injuries on the basis of Dennis three Zone classification and Young and Burgess Classifications. Methodology: in the current study total 32 patients were enrolled. Details about demographic data, mode of injury, co- morbid condition and radiological findings were noted. Results: it was observed that sacral fractures were common in male, and were due to road traffic accidents. 50% study population suffered from type 1 classification of denis classification. As per young and burgess types classification 25 % patients had suffered from vertical shear injury. Conclusion: sacral fractures common in male population and due to road traffic accidents.
