Revealing mistake: Bond drives his Austin Martin into a wall because he believes that the headlights appearing before him belong to another car (actually, they were the reflection of his own lights). When he first sees the lights, they are directly in front of him, but only just before the crash, the angle of the reflection changes. And the way the mirror was hung up when Oddjob looks at it, it was in no position to reflect the light the way Bond sees them.
