Will a stroke cause ripped arteries?  I had a stroke I'm a 41 year old.  I had the stroke in September at the beginning and had a accident in July at the end of the month.

quite possibly when you have a stroke your brain bleeds.

Strokes can be classified into two major categories: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemia is due to interruption of the blood supply, while hemorrhage is due to rupture of a blood vessel or an abnormal vascular structure. 80% of strokes are due to ischemia; the remainder are due to hemorrhage.
Stroke does not cause ripped arteries but can be caused by them.
Stroke is occasionally treated with thrombolysis ("clot-buster"), but usually with supportive care (physiotherapy and occupational therapy) and secondary prevention with antiplatelet drugs (aspirin and often dipyridamole), blood pressure control, statins and anticoagulation.
