Description: 

The novel briefly recalls the scene, described in detail in Flags in the Dust, where Colonel Bayard Sartoris dies in a car accident. The event occurs when he and his nephew, also called Bayard, "come over a hill at about fifty miles an hour" and have to drive into "the ditch" beside the road to avoid hitting "a Negro family in a wagon" (124).
