    The car skidded sideways. Is the most commonly used (at least in North America) used but the word sidewards is acceptable also. As far as I can tell the two words mean the same thing.

    Sidewards is not a commonly used word at all. The only place I might use it is something like this:

    He gave the window a sidewards glance as he walked by.
