* A 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 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.

* A later episode of ''ThomasTheTankEngine'' does this by cutting to Emily and shaking the camera for when Toby crashes into Percy. This was to avoid "traumatising" the little kiddies.

Used [[RuleOfFunny because it's funny]], sound effects are cheap, and [[TakeOurWordForIt no writer could come up with a more chaotic scene than your imagination can]]. May involve a SoundOnlyDeath or an ICantLookGesture.

* ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace'': The grieving old man walks off screen, his shadow freeze-frames and we hear a screech of brakes and a yell. "Confused by his great loss, the old man left that home... never to return!" Only a funny example because of {{narm}}. At B-Fest, someone will occasionally [[FreeWheel roll a single tire in front of the screen]] at this point. Note that during this supposed offscreen car accident, [[TheyJustDidntCare the man's shadow is clearly visible on the ground.]]
