I am not sure why, but it sounds awfully unidiomatic, but I can't think of a better way to say it. I am not sure if I should even use the word car, and if I should even use rollercoaster as a noun adjective.

For example:

He was listening to music inside the fast-moving rollercoaster car before the car jumped out of the track and led him to his death.

Perhaps, "He was listening to music inside the careening rollercoaster car before the car jumped the rails and plunged, taking him to his death.

See "careen" as a verb here: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/careen#English,

especially meaning number six.
