* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': In a season 3 flashback, we see that Karen Page accidentally killed her brother this way. After shooting her drug-dealing boyfriend Todd to stop him from beating Kevin with a tire iron, she gets Kevin in the car and drives off. She's high, strung out, and angry at Kevin for choosing to confront Todd in attempt to get him away from Karen. The whole time, Karen keeps looking at Kevin, who is bleeding from where Todd punched him. Unfortunately, she keeps her eyes off the road too long to realize she's drifting out of her lane until Kevin suddenly shouts "WATCH OUT!" Karen looks back just as the car hits the guardrail of a small bridge with its right wheels. The car is launched into the air and flips over three times before coming to a rest on its roof. Karen survives the accident with minor cuts and scrapes, but Kevin breaks his neck and is killed instantly. In the aftermath, Karen's father disowns her and basically shoos her out of town.
