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.
