* ''Series/EastEnders'' seems to like this trope, especially concerning the Mitchells: Tiffany, Jamie and Danielle were all killed in this manner. Jamie's death was also due in part to Martin Fowler texting on his phone and not watching the road, adding a double dose of {{Anvilicious Anviliciousness}}.

* The TV Movie ''W.E.I.R.D. World'' has a rather interesting example of this.

On the day in question, her brother comes to her to steal her research and takes them both back in time half an hour to leave the facility. She tries to escape and throws what she pretends is her research file into the road. He goes to pick it up, discovers it's actually her ID badge, and gets run over by ''his past self''.
