Hmmm. I watched the video a few times, and thats all I can base my opinion on.
From the video, it looks likes the OP was about to pass the truck and was surprised when the truck turned left. The OP was hugging the right side of the road and drifted left to pass the truck.
Trucks don't magically turn 90 degrees, especially at 30 miles an hour--the guy had to slow down to turn left, and the OP was coming too fast and didn't see the speed change.
In my opinion, the OP was very lucky he didn't hit the guy, cause it would 100% be his fault.
So the truck didn't indicate a left turn----big deal, it happens literally every day. If the OP was paying attention, he would have been able to slow down or even stop if necessary.
Locking the front end like that tells me he was not paying attention.
Anyway, I'm real happy he didn't go down. Thats the type of video I would love to see at MSF.

I see worse drivers all the time. However turning like that without signaling, and if he really cut inbetween a pack of bikes, well that isn't exactly gold star driving.
Second, that braking was weak. Look at your front fork. It hardly compresses. You were barely using your front brake. The squealing is your rear locking up.
