Ben Higgins, the sports director for San Diego's ABC affiliate, was in Tucson, Arizona on Thursday, where he covered San Diego State University's first ever NCAA tournament victory.

But what made his report so memorable was the part when a SUV darn near ran him over as the cameras rolled. Luckily for Higgins, the vehicle stopped just in the nick of time.

Since videos of television reporters actually being struck by things are fun too, we've included a bunch those after the video of Higgins' close call.

Check them out after the jump, and feel free to laugh because none of the reporters were seriously injured (phew!).
