Welcome to ehealthforum.
The outcome of car wreck as miscarriage depends on the severity of your injuries and area of injuries. If you got hurt in lower abdominal or back region, you could have a miscarriage. Having miscarriage is not a must after accident.
Look out for development of any new or abnormal symptoms (bleeding, brown discharge, severe abdominal cramps) and report to your gynecologist/obstetrician immediately.
Take care.
