Regardless of who was "at fault" trucker was clearly trying to pass the police cruiser in the adjacent lane with its lights on. This accident was entirely avoidable had the trucker simply taken time to consider what was going on - probably not his first encounter with a rolling road block. Exercising your "right of way" doesn't always mean you are doing the right thing. LE was probably assuming other vehicles on the road knew what he was doing as well. It seems that no one was seriously injured which is a good thing, but both drivers share culpability for this mess. Just like in an argument sometimes one person is right and one is wrong. And sometimes both are wrong.
