From a pushback truck you can't see that bridge/door, you can't really see it from the cockpit..
Unless you are going to wind open the side window(s) and lean out you can’t see the door at all from the Flight deck, but you would have an EICAS message if it was open and can also check the dedicated Doors page on the EICAS display…

In any event for all we know (well allI know) so far this may not have been caused by an attempt at pushing back with the door still open, as has been mentioned upthread other options are possibilities….
