These are short, linear, angulated, incised injuries caused by the characteristic cubed fragments of shattered tempered glass. Tempered glass is found in the side windows of automobiles and not in the windshield or rear window. Because there is often an impact of the skin against the flat, tempered, glass window as it shatters, the incised wounds can also have an abraded component.
