Luthor Garland being "scared back to death" by Bobby and Sam.

Luther Garland was a huge but gentle man whose size freaked people out. After a woman that he had a crush on disappeared, her husband automatically blamed Luther and road-hauled him outside the lumber mill he worked at, brutally killing him. Everyone knew what happened, but his murder was covered up. Luther became a buruburu, a spirit that is made of fear and kills through ghost sickness, a disease that mimics the symptoms of the ghost's death over 48 hours before eventually killing them. Luther eventually infected his killer with the disease and he spread it to two other people before dying. This drew the attention of Sam and Dean and Dean got infected as well, resulting in him becoming increasingly terrified of everything around him. Needing to stop Luther and unable to burn his remains due to the method of his death having left his body-parts scattered over an unknown area as he was dragged behind the car, Sam and Bobby destroyed him by wrapping an iron chain etched in spell work around his neck and then road-hauling him behind the Impala, recreating his method of death and successfully "scaring him to death," saving Dean.
