    The car hit a bump at full speed

    I am wondering if my sentences sound natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    The car hit a bump at full speed and flew a few meters before landing with a crash. For a moment it almost stopped, and then it took up the speed again and vanished behind the corner, its tyres screeching squealing.

    Let me try the second time.

    The car hit a bump at full speed and flew a few meters before landing with a crash. For a moment it almost stopped, and then it took up speed again and vanished behind the corner, its tyres screeching and squealing.

    I'd use a semicolon after "stopped" and remove the and that follows.

    The car should vanish around the corner.
