A modern ABS most probably WOULD have kicked in and WOULD have catched her.
However, as you state she has a more pavement oriented tire than you, there is a chance she would have been too fast for the turn even without braking. And oh, in my experience it takes huge balls to rely on the ABS under these circumstances.
Into the dark side of our nature to look we all need. The energy, the passion there is. Afraid of that people are. Pieces of us it holds busy denying we are.
Riding is flowing through traffic like water through a rocky river bed.
