Speed (1994)

Factual error: In the bus freeway gap jump, a second after driving off the freeway edge, the bus has fallen beneath that edge level of the freeway. It would be impossible for it to have regained altitude to be above the freeway on the other side. It would have hit at best halfway between the wheels of the bus, if at all.

The Ball Game - S7-E4

Other mistake: Helen is sitting on the first base side, there is a play at the plate and Opie is called out at the plate.
