Here is my best explanation:

'went off' is the definition.

The answer and definition can be both to do with motion as well as being past participle verbs.

Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'son packed' is the subsidiary indication.

'son' becomes 's'.

'packed' becomes 'crammed' ('cram' can be a synonym of 'pack').

's'+'crammed'='scrammed'

'and' is the link.
