I remember a similar thing happened to me a few years ago and when I told the driver of the tanker that I had called the police he said oh well if that's how you want to be, got in his cab and drove up the hard shoulder for about 200 yards, went up the grass bank and urinated. He had no papers with him and even the phone number he gave me was incorrect. The police said that he committed 8 offences but when I rang them a few weeks later and asked if I would be needed as a witness at the trial they told me that no proceedings would take place. No wonder truck drivers can get away with driving like lunatics.

Some truck drivers use drugs and although they are supposed to keep logs they can be falsified. I was recently sent a video that was about horrible accidents that were caused by truck drivers. They think they own the road.
