the same force that is pushing the car outwards,the same one as mentioned you face on a merry go round,will act on everything else that is taking the same path in the car.
like gravity pulls down your fuel to the bottom of tank,now again the fuel is pushed to the bottom,doesnt matter if the car is in entirely in the wrong direction as perceived by us watching.
the lappy bag in the rear seat,the bottle of water,the tissue box will all keep to their spots,as long as the driver keeps up enough speed.
its basically constant acceleration,even if the speed is constant.
the car would rush off in a tangent if the wall aint there.
but since the wall is present,the car is basically changing direction constantly into a direction where it wasnt going before,hence ,acceleration.

just a more extreme version of when you take a flat corner too fast,and everything slides outwards.
bank the corner higher and higher,till its perpendicular,and keep enough velocity,voila..."maut ka corner"
