What is the most likely reason why Myrtle dashed in front of Gatsby's car?
She was running away from Wilson who threatened to hit her.
She wanted to get a ride into New York City to find Tom.
Having seen Tom, and who she thought was his wife in Gatsby’s yellow car earlier, she assumed it was him and wanted him to stop.
Realizing that Tom was driving a different car, she wanted to tell him not to sell his other car to Wilson, as she did not want to have to move away.
She was intoxicated and did not realize she had run into traffic until it was too late to avoid being hit.
