A man from Florida is lucky to be alive after an accident in Abilene Thursday afternoon.

The man had pulled his motorcycle over onto the side of the road at mile marker 283 along I-20 on top of 277 in order to adjust something on his bike.

He then pulled back into traffic without looking and was struck by an 18-wheeler which dragged him underneath it for a short distance.

The man suffered a broken ankle, but was conscious and talking to paramedics upon their arrival.
