Yea I was trying to figure it out also, but if he did that the back end would have swung out first...
In the video you clearly see the front veer left, almost like some kind of suspension failure. But since he still drove to the meet that seems unlikely. The only other assumption is that he didn't see the guy to his left and took a hard left to change lanes to avoid traffic..? Or he dropped his phone?
Also it doesn't look like it is raining at all, the cars wipers aren't even on and roads looked like they almost dried up.
