This is an exceptional case in which you never know when you could be in the right place at the wrong time.

West Virginia faced Maryland on Saturday, and the Mountaineers were running all over the Terrapins by halftime with a 38-0 score.  On this play West Virginia's Shelton Gibson ran for 41 yards to a touchdown like Forrest Gump forgetting to turn on the brakes after reaching the end zone. In this clip, you can see Gibson bulldoze his way over this poor Terrapin cheerleader, who was in her rightful place just minding her own biz with the rest of her cheerleading teammates.

Damn! Perhaps, we can give him the benefit of the doubt per the Laws of Physics in which his momentum was hard to stop once Gibson accelerated at his top speed—or something like that. She'll be aight, we hope.
