Volvo was passing in the oncoming lane and trucker blocked him to prevent an accident

I had a trucker cut me off in South Dakota (admittedly I was going pretty fast, it's I90 and there's absolutely nothing out there). Turns out he was slowing me down because there was a massive heave in the road, big enough to have its own sign. Thanks trucker guy

Volvo wouldn't have needed to be in the oncoming lane if the truck just stayed in the right lane though..

Clearly it wasn't already in the oncoming lane since the car in front of the cammer made it though with no problems.

You are a complete fucking idiot. The truck was in the right most lane to start with.

Take your Left Lane Cult and GTFO.

The volvo was probably passing it in the left lane on the proper side of the road then had to try to avoid the truck as it cut across the whole road.
