The group just ignores the armored man standing in the bridge and crashes right through. THUNK!

The car gets through, but takes some damage.

  • Car's chassis is damaged

[Character]: Fight him one on one!

[Character] charges right at the sports-gear armored man, tackles him at the waist, and tosses him over the bridge. SPASH!

The armored man continues staring straight forward. It's not clear if he even heard [Character].

[Character]: COOL IT!!! (full charge)

Entirely untested. Whoops!

Trivia

  • The 'man in makeshift armor, made from athletic gear' could possibly be a reference to the Australian bushranger Ned Kelly, who had made makeshift armor to fight the Australian police.
