Rick was heading to Dallas for the weekend with his friend, Rick. The two were very obnoxious, harassing a radio DJ Stretch, shooting out signs, and playing chicken with a truck. That night, after calling Stretch again they were attacked by Leatherface with a chainsaw, who is in the truck from earlier. Rick tried to shoot him with the gun he had been using to destroy signs, and managed to fight him off, but Buzz's head was sawed off, then their car crashed, killing Rick. The whole time Stretch was on the phone.
