How does a native describe the action of the person when you see someone suddenly appears on the road whilst you’re driving.

“Someone ..... to the road while I was driving and I turned the wheel so hard in order not to hit”

Can I use “rush”?

I would suggest dash:

Someone dashed across the road while I was driving and I turned the wheel hard to avoid collision.

In addition to CowperKettle's dash across you could use the phrase came out of nowhere to describe the sudden appearance of the pedestrian.

He came out of nowhere! I had to swerve sharply so as not to hit him.

You had no warning whatsoever that he was about to cross the road. Perhaps he had stepped out from behind a parked van, or came out of an unlit area at night.
