Probably the closest in recent years, without actually wrecking, was the classic person on the right side of the road decides to do a u-turn in front of you without warning. I'm usually pretty good at looking for people in cars parked on the side of the road. With this one, I saw no indication of what was going to happen. Wheels weren't cocked, didn't see the reverse lights as they put it in drive, no exhaust coming out, just nothing. They darted out and whipped it across four lanes in an instant, and ABS was engaged as I came within a few feet of the side of the suv-hybrid thing. I still don't think they ever knew I was there even while driving around me. Or cared.
