What does this mean? He wanted to pass me on a bend? This English does not sound natural
FWIW, and not having gotten to this exercise yet, I interpret the sentence in the context of driving, with one driver choosing to pass another in a not-so-good place. As to the translation, I would expect to hear "ON a curve" much more often than "IN a curve," at least in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic regions in the US.
