In brief: Midfoot fractures

Depending on the location, a midfoot fracture can occur with forces ranging from minor to major. Dancing, ankle inversion injuries, motor vehicle accident, falls from heights & horses and sports can all cause midfoot fractures/dislocations.
Treatment of these injuries depends on the type and severity. Surgery is sometimes required. You doctor must evaluate your injury & determine the treatment.

In brief: Varies

It really can vary from twisting, flexion, extension, or direct impact.

In brief: Fall, car accident

Midfoot fractures are usually high velocity injuries caused by falls and car accidents.
If you are hit by a car behind your car your foot may hit the pedal or floor board as you are propelled forward and causes your foot to fold in half.
