Still I'd like to think he would be steering to try to avoid things like trees even if braking. A choice between directly into a tree or a glancing blow and I know which one I'd prefer.

That said it's possible he went into the curb at an angle thinking he was going to shoot the gap between the trees. The problem is when he hit the curb the nose would stop but the back end wouldn't which could have then spun the car into the tree/light pole.

That's the difference between the track and the street. Go off-track and you run off into the grass/wall. Go off street and you nail a curb which can then launch you anywhere.
Fire department said they hit a tree, then a light pole, and then another tree.
