they talk about on page 54 of my book:

"But instead of the graceful glide through the puddle that its occupants were expecting, the bus emitted a tremendous crack and careened drunkenly into our trap.For a moment it swayed and we held our breath, afraid it would topple over. Then it sputtered a last murmuring protest and died, its left front wheel in our ditch, its right wheel in the gully, like a lopsided billy goat on its knees.

OK -

first of all, only the white kids get to ride the bus.
