My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
It's difficult to know what happened in these situations from short excerpts, but its sounds like a right turn hook.
Not to absolve the truck driver, or cast blame on the deceased, the incident does point out that we need to be very careful around trucks, and not stay in the "No Zone" i.e. the area the driver can't see. Whether that's what happened here or not, it's a reminder to be vigilant around trucks.
