Buck and Joe are out in the woods. Buck is on his four-wheeler and Joe is on his off-road motorcycle. The two play a game where they drive towards each other very fast and veer away at the last minute. After a very close call, Buck looks back to see if Joe is okay, only for a tree branch to slam into his chest, breaking his neck and killing him.
