I don't know if that was target fixation. I watched it a few times and it looked like it was going to stay in the rider's lane at first. It seems like the rider's natural reaction was to get in the other lane when the mattress flew off. It just so happened that the mattress went the same way.
Either way, that's one lucky rider. It looks like the brain-dead driver didn't even notice that his unsecured mattress nearly killed someone.
Watch the vid again, mattress was just barely over into the right lane, the rider drifted from the center of the middle lane to the right edge towards it and just managed to miss it. After passing it, the rider moved to the right lane to pass the truck & signal the problem. "you go where you look - target fixation" right out of TOTW.
