Ted's railgun fire misses the vehicle.

The other ATV returns fire in turn [Strike: 10], hitting the rear of
the ATV [Damage: 14MD].

The flare grenade strikes the lower part of the windshield of the
pursuing vehicle, so does not hit the gunner. However, the result
seems satisfactory, as the ATV swerves unsuccessfully [Dodge: 7] to
avoid the grenade. The driver is unable to recover, or possibly
blinded by the flare, cannot, and plunges off the trail. In moments,
the pursuing ATV is engulfed into the mist, and suddenly the engine
sound shifts from behind them to somewhere to their right, and then to
their left.

Far above them, on the platform, they can swear the see someone waving
their arms.

Louissa brings the ATV to a skidding halt.

"Looks like someone looking for help." she says. "What do you want to do?"
