Watching that in-car video from the car behind him, it appeared that Allan got loose when he was on the rumble strip on the left side of the track. The car's ass-end kicked out to the left and he corrected. Right at the moment he corrected, the rumble strip ended and he had 4 tires back on the track with the fronts pointed left. That slung him towards the wall.

At least, that's what I saw from it.
