I think it wouldn't be so straightforward in this case. The driver had started the left turn toward the taxiway then seems to have realised he wasn't going to make it. So, the choice now was reverse a short way and complete the turn to the left or reverse a short way to make the turn to his right in order top get to the runway end. Once the pilot had realised the turn into the taxiway was not going to happen, it was going to be a reverse whichever choice he made.
