Do not underestimate the power of good sound effects combined with the viewers' imaginations!

You are in the right track about "cutitng around" the actual event. Never underestimate the power of people's imagination. Sometimes what you don't show is as powerful as what you do show. Very few movies benefit from the Hollywood high-octane, mega-stunt, in-your-face pyrotechnics treatment.

Hey thanks to both, the bystander Idea is awesome, I'm definitely going to do that!
how about not showing the side where you can see the face of the actor run over and then placing a dummy wearing the same thing on the other side with some blood packs which will burst when car runs over it? maybe it could work as well, giving some realism to the frame
however if showing the run-over part is not important, then the reaction shots works the best, building up the suspense
