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 almost backed up over him as the cameras rolled on live TV! Luckily for Higgins, his camera guy stepped in to save him.

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, and feel free to laugh because none of the reporters were seriously injured.
