Well, from what I could see he definitely wasn't going fast enough to have thrown the car off balance by tapping the brake mid-corner. My guess is gravel or lose dirt on the road. He goes into the ditch, but you can see that there is already some sort of debris in the road before the car flips around in the ditch....

You can see the chasing car jerking back and forth in the same spot where the ST lost traction as well.

looks like lift off oversteer, dude had to felt the back end lose grip idiot probly lifted off the gas and pressed the brakes which caused the car to regain traction and shoot him off the road... smh

The crash is totally strange. Nothing i can think of could 'force' that car into the ditch, except the left front wheel locking up, AND ???

So IMO something is really fishy smelling about the video.

I didn't see the brake lights, but that was definitely lift-off oversteer! Only more right-input and a floored accelerator could've saved that neophyte!

Got what he deserved. Way to be a douche with traffic around.
