In an abstract, simplified style this bas relief portrays a traffic accident. A person lies unconscious on the road, a wheel from a vehicle rolls by and above the scene hovers the falcon, which was previously the symbol for the Danish Ambulance and Assistance Corps.

A traffic accident is not the most common subject for a bas relief sculpture.

Henry Heerup is more commonly known for humourous and tender sculptures but in this case the subject matter is serious.
