A 55-year-old bicyclist was injured when his bike collided with a pickup Monday night in Spokane Valley.

Guy Werner was southbound on his mountain bike about 7:30 p.m. in the northbound lane of Pines Road. The Ford F-150, driven by Gregory J. Cozza, stopped at the intersection of Pines and Fourth Avenue. As Cozza traveled west into the intersection, his truck collided with Werner, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Werner was not wearing a helmet, WSP reported. He was transported to Valley Hospital, where he was treated and released Monday night.

WSP is still investigating the accident.
