Hey. Kindly help me with this.

She jumps to the side just in time to avoid the car, who instead goes on and crashes into a house.

1: Is there a more natural phrase than "jumps to the side"?

2: Could I use "ducks to the side"?

3: Is "goes on" the most natural choice to use here?

4: Is "instead" ok to use since the one in the car was deliberately trying to run her over?

Thank you for your time.

anonymous1: Is there a more natural phrase than "jumps to the side"?

It's fine, but you can also try:

jumps to the side of the road

jumps to the right/left

anonymous2: Could I use "ducks to the side"?

No, "jumps" is more dramatic.

anonymous3: Is "goes on" the most natural choice to use here?

You can use "goes on to" instead of "goes on and". However, you can also omit that part altogether.

anonymous4: Is "instead" ok OK/okay to use since the one in the car was deliberately trying to run her over?

Yes, it's okay to use "instead".

Who wrote that sentence? Instead of "who", it should have "which".

I wrote it. And actually I have written it with "which". I just wrote "who" by mistake when I posted it.
