'Round the corner came a large truck.
'round is understood as a contraction of 'around' here, I guess, hence the apostrophe. I've seen such usage.
However, "round" and "around" are difficult to distinguish, so maybe a native should have a say.
But the way it is said here isn't wrong, right? Only perhaps antiquated.
I wouldn't use this sentence, but I've reverted it back to the original.
Round the corner came a large truck.

This is how I'd translate the Japanese.
