I see that also Fred Idaho.
I guess my initial reaction was that I saw the rear of the VW with its blinker on. I interpreted that to mean that the VW was ahead of the truck at that point. The VW may have had room to squeeze in (so very wrong on all accounts but possible). Then that window closed and the accident soon followed. If the VW was ahead, could the truck not have slowed?
I guess you just cannot fix stupid. Two strong willed individuals came across each other and broke a law of physics. This reminds me of a childhood fable - The Obstinate goats.
