One of the people in the car is old Owl Eyes, who has spent his night perusing the books in Gatsby's library and apparently drinking. When the car ends up in the ditch, old Owl Eyes struggles to get it out of the ditch until such time as he says that he is "done" with the whole business. He is with one other person and appears drunken and confused.
