At the side of the road, Vinny gasps as Liam and Bill crouch beside him. Liam tells Bill this is Thomas’ friend… the one who changed the test results. Bill looks pensive. Liam frantically assures Vinny that he didn’t see him and they’ll get him help. He tells his dad they need to call 911. Vinny tries to speak but can’t anything out, then goes unconscious or dies. Liam gasps, “Oh my God!” and passes out. Bill buckles Liam back into the car, retrieves a phone off Vinny’s person, then gets back in the car and drives away.

Eventually, Bill pulls over, puts Vinny’s phone under the car tire and drives over it to crush it. He then picks it up and tosses it into the valley. As Bill gets back in the car, Liam comes to and stammers, What’s going on? Where’s Vinny?” Bill says he’s dead. Liam wants to go back for him; they can’t leave him there, besides it was an accident. Bill argues he has to protect his son; Liam had motive to kill him — he hated Vinny! Liam protests, but Bill won’t allow him go to prison or lose his entire future over this. He intones, “No one will ever know what happened.”
