:nod

How do you know that the rider was actually in the truck's lane and not in the next one over when the rider pulled next to him? It's not clear from the original description, and it's likely that...

Watch the slow-mo. When the rider starts the rightward move, the car is still in his lane; Once it becomes clear that the car was also going for the shoulder, there's a sharp tilt leftward.

I give them at least 3 feet. More as the speed differential increases, but rarely more than a half lane.
