Young cyclist vs car collision at low velocity. Patient walks to ER and has chest and pelvic radiographs. He is told he has a few rib fractures and a broken clavicle, then discharged with advice to take regular analgesics. He re-attends after 2 days complaining of breathing problems. What has gone wrong in this narrative?
