    turn vs turning

    1) It was at that turning that my car crashed into the back of a truck.
    2) It was at that turn that my car crashed into the back of a truck.

    Can someone please tell me which of the above sentences sounds fine? What's the difference between turn and turning?

    In AmE, you would use turn. I believe that Ive heard turning in this context in BrE.
