Authorities said the man, who was in his 40s, got out of his disabled pickup truck in the carpool lane on the westbound side. A westbound car hit the pickup truck, and the impact pushed the truck into the man, who was flung over the center divider and into the path of an eastbound motorcycle, which then struck him.
