HGV crashes into Van after Idiot Volvo driver braked checked HGV

.No sound. This Volvo had been brake testing me awhile. You can see at the lights he slows down then speeds up and slows down, The lights are on green so no reason to stop, he then goes again and then slams on, I went around him to avoid hitting him ( maybe) I was not close. Then this woman in a white van comes through the other way on red....Bang

Volvo appears to be the only innocent party here.
