When we drive - and we have a VW - we never play with trucks. Me in the VW, I'd have slowed down and moved to the left after the truck went by, because a) he's bigger than I am and b) he does have more trouble slowing down (and speeding back up). Both drivers could've done something different, but ... me in the smaller car, I will take responsibility and err on the side of caution. Wherever I'm going, whatever my hurry, I'm better off getting there five minutes late than "the late."
