The wife of a motorcyclist who was dragged under a fuel tanker says he is lucky to be alive.
The accident happened at Queenborough Corner, Sheppey, at about 5.20pm yesterday as the lorry was pulling out of the petrol station.
Brenda Huggett praised those who saw what happened and flagged down the driver as her husband Terry became trapped underneath.
"The driver didn't see him and he was dragged under the lorry about 20ft.
"Thanks to other people that managed to flag the driver to stop.
"My husband is very lucky to be alive and just has a broken leg and exhaust burns which he will need skin grafts.
"He is very shaken up but doing ok."
She added: "A big 'thank you' to everyone who was there.
"His bike was his pride and joy. He's been riding all his life.
"It was a customised bike that's been on many rallies and will sadly be missed as it's unrepairable."
Police, firefighters and medics, including an air ambulance doctor, were called.
Fire crews found Mr Huggett, who is 57-years-old, trapped under the lorry and had to use 'heavy rescue cutting gear' to free him.
Ambulance crews, working with the air ambulance team, treated him at the petrol station before taking him to the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford.
Police are appealing for information about the crash.
