She was braking when she crossed onto looser material, She didn't manage to change direction by very much before the front tucked in.

I thought it was a real question whether ABS reducing the braking force would have at least given her some sort of indication the front was being overloaded.

Some have been saying "No, she was turning, ABS doesn't help if you're turning". Others are saying more like "Maybe, because if she hadn't been braking so much she could have made it". I still don't know.
