Accidents that cause paralyzation and muteness

I was wondering if anyone knew what type of accident can cause a person to become completely paralyzed and unable to speak. In other words, the person would be able to hear and see everything, but unable to respond. Does anyone have any clue? I know Huntington's Disease does this to a person, but I was wondering more along the lines of something like certain exposure to fire, or if a certain nerve was damaged. Thanks in advance to any help you can provide. :)

ETA: I did Google this, but it's pretty difficult to google something so specific.
