Looks like their is corroboration of Hutchinson's account from within the SS itself.

Anyone else wonder why Trump is so pissed off at Hutchinson's testimony? It seems there may be more truth than most are willing to accept in the Trump Support Channels.
This version seems plausible. If Trump was upset and irate, and cussing out his security detail, he may have jumped forward in his seat to more fully assert himself, but without the intention of grabbing the wheel or assaulting anyone.
Ultimately we need to get everyone on the record, under oath. The "sources" thing tends to be destabilizing, and it distracts from the overall message of what Trump did.
The biggest issue is how complicit he was in selling the lie about voter fraud, and then working as hard as he could to destroy the US election. However those overarching themes are too complex to keep many poorly educated folks attention.
The right is very heavily invested in not accepting the truth of what happened. It's been said that if we don't do something about Jan 6, it will happen again. I didn't accept that at first, since Trump was so completely over the top that it seemed unlikely we'd have a repeat. But listening to some of the defenses that are mounted, I'm not so sure now. There are people in Trump World who would do something similar again, in a heartbeat, and not consider it wrong.
The conservative media has put forth the message for so long, and so consistently, that "they're coming for you, and they'll take what you have", that many on the right see it as warfare, where anything goes. If we don't do this to them, they will or are already doing it to us.
Trump basically said that outright, when he claimed that the election would be stolen, over a year in advance. If you can villianize the adversary, that justifies anything you subsequently do to them. It's Putin 101, as we see in Ukraine. No wonder Trump admires him, he carries out in Russia what Trump has been unable to do in the US.
