* The first episode of ''Series/FlashForward'' did this on the largest scale yet. When the blackout occurs, ''every driver on the planet'' falls victim. (Granted, they only fall unconscious for a couple of minutes, but some do not survive the resulting crashes.)

* Happens in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' if the driver of a car is killed. In GrandTheftAutoV, it also happens when the player takes out the pilot of an aircraft when it's in mid-air.

** This was realised horrifically with the strange case of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helios_Airways_Flight_522 Helios Airways Flight 522]]. An error in preparing the plane for the flight meant that the pressurisation switch had been turned off, and wasn't turned on again before the plane took off. As the plane climbed, the crew and virtually everyone else on board (sans one flight attendant who managed to reach a handheld oxygen tank) passed out from a lack of oxygen and low air pressure. The plane proceeded until it reached Athens. By this point, everyone but the flight attendant was ''dead''. The plane proceeded to fly around the city of Athens on Autopilot for almost two hours, unable to land because there was no one able to control the plane and carry out the landing sequence, which is always dealt with by the crew. Fighter pilots noticed the flight attendant attempting to control the jet, but with the attendant unable to communicate with the pilots or understand the controls, the plane kept circling the city. In a last ditch attempt, the flight attendant tried to land the plane, but the plane's fuel had ran out, and the aircraft slammed into the ground.
