Not sure if anything he did after he got on the grass would've helped. There's not much grip, you're just there for the ride... Although steering right might've
spun him the other way and away from the wall, can't tell.
He could've realized his had too much speed and point the steering wheel straight at the crest of the hill, that would've gotten him on the turtles, but saved him a spinout and the impact. I guess that before he'd typically carry way less speed through there, so that crest didn't have much effect and he just ignored it. Lesson learned.
And BigD, I disagree on that not being a skill related accident. Gotta read the road ahead of ya and realize what happens when you crest a hill. I think he was staring at that Viper coming up and lost track of everything else.
