Injury to the superior sagittal sinus is the most common dural sinus injury which carries a high risk of morbidity and mortality. In this article, we report a case of 21-year male patient who sustained head injury while he was riding on a motorcycle, he lost balance, and his head struck against the road divider. The patient had massive injury to the superior sagittal sinus, underlying brain parenchyma, and probably laceration of draining venous channels surrounding the superior sagittal sinus. In spite of the elevation of the depressed fragments, injury to the superior sagittal sinus resulted in the bifrontal massive venous infarction and fatal outcome in the present case.
