* Happens rather tragically in ''Literature/OneDay'' (both novel and film) to one of the main characters, as she is riding her bicycle to a romantic dinner with her husband. The film actually starts with the bicycle ride but then cuts back to the beginning of the story. When the bicycle ride resumes, she exists onto a street without looking and gets hit by a truck. The rest of the film is her husband dealing with the loss and remembering how they met.

* In the final issue of a recent story arc in {{The DCU}}'s ''ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica'', Wildcat and his new-found meta-human son are fighting a losing battle against BadAss DiabolicalMastermind Vandal Savage, until Savage charges out into the street after the son, right into the path of a speeding fire truck responding to a blaze started earlier in the brawl. It's not near enough to ''kill'' him, but it does end the fight.
