* A WesternAnimation/ChipAndDale short "Toy Tinkers" employed this technique when Donald "trips" a passing toy car and sends it crashing offscreen, which he watches with glee, only to cut to the wreckage afterwards. Despite its resemblance to a HannaBarbera gag it came out back in 1949, though ironically it was directed by one Jack Hannah (no relation).

* In a few ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' strips, all we see of Calvin's sled trips is Hobbes' reaction as he watches from the top of the hill. What makes these strips hilarious isn't necessarily the reaction shots, or the implied carnage, but that inevitably, for some reason, Hobbes always looks up into the sky at the end, just before Calvin shows up again. Implying that Calvin managed to catch some serious air.
** Not to mention that one strip has a sled ride through Hobbes's point of view, where there are only flashes of the ride. They end up in a tree, though Hobbes has no idea how because he kept closing his eyes.
** The second panel of this [[http://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1986/06/18 strip]].
* ''ComicStrip/FunkyWinkerbean'': In the story where a drunken Wally Winkerbean crashes his car, resulting in near-fatal injuries to his girlfriend, Becky Blackburn (who was also drunk). The scene cuts away just as the car begins to go airborne, surrounded by clips of the two in other pictures and kissing just as the car is going off the road. The next series of strips involved the major characters learning there had been an accident with serious injuries.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' short film ''[[WesternAnimation/PixarShorts Mike's New Car]]'', Mike orders Sully to get out of the car. The camera stays focused on Sully while Mike begins to drive away, but immediately loses control. A large crash is heard, followed by six hubcaps (six-wheel drive) and Sulley catching Mike as if he was a shooting star.
