As the hover vehicle makes its final plunge towards the buildings at
the end of the block, Lady Frost lets loose a veritable blizzard of
snow.  It coats the road and the sides of the buildings in several
feet of snow.

At the same time Bongo makes a final attempt to slow the vehicle down
and angle it into Frost's snow bank.  With only seconds to spare,
Bongo manages what seems almost impossible.

Still, it's a jarring crash.  The undercarriage of the hover vehicle
digs through the snow, hitting pavement and screeching like a dying
beast.  The thrusters whine before being torn off.  Though it seems
like an eternity for the passengers, the hover vehicle comes to rest
only a few seconds after impact.

Injuries are slight [OOC: No more than a few SDC], but everyone is
pretty rattled.  Osiris's horse has gone completely mad, and smashes
down the back door and bolts outside, running down the street and
neying madly.

Bongo's sensitive ears pick up the sound of hover vehicles.  Clearly
they are still searching for the hover vehicle, and it won't take them
too long to zero in on the crash sight.
