* While a teenager, future actor Richard Harris was delivering a massive haulage truck to Dublin. Being somewhat drunk, he tried to drive under a low bridge in the belief that he could get through [[InsaneTrollLogic if he drove quickly enough]]. He then unsuccessfully tried to convince a policeman that the [[BlatantLies bridge was on the back of his truck because he was delivering it to Limerick]].

* In ''Film/TheToxicAvenger Part 2'', during the final chase scene Toxi's cab driver is unable to avoid this fate. After a moment of silence, everyone in the cab freaks out and when the driver starts ranting about how his cab's been ruined, Toxi tells him to chill out 'cause he now has a convertible and hands him a pair of sunglasses (and he does!). Oddly enough, the little Jesus statue in the back is unharmed.

* There is a bridge in the United States called the [[https://maps.google.com/maps?q=gregson+street&hl=en&ll=35.999059,-78.909899&spn=0.000931,0.002064&sll=35.98773,-78.891106&sspn=0.118619,0.264187&t=h&hnear=N+Gregson+St,+Durham,+North+Carolina+27701&z=20 11 foot 8 Bridge]], a railroad bridge with low vertical clearance. Drivers of large vehicles frequently fail to take heed of the big yellow warning signs and the warning lights triggered by their overheight vehicles, and the roofs get sheared off in spectacular fashion. Two cameras at this intersection capture every instance of this to YouTube. This happens twelve to sixteen times a year, so much so that the locals have nicknamed it the "Can Opener Bridge". There is even [[http://11foot8.com/ a website]] dedicated to the videos of these crashes.
