SPARKS, NV- A motorcyclist is okay, despite being hit by a truck in Spanish Springs Thursday night.

It happened near Eagle Canyon Road and Alena Way around 6:00 pm.

According to an official with the Washoe County Sheriff's Office a pickup truck was making a left hand turn from Alena Way onto Eagle Canyon Drive when the driver didn't see the motorcycle.

The motorcycle, which officials say had the right-of-way, was then struck by the pickup truck.

After being inspected by REMSA officials, the driver of the motorcycle was found to be uninjured.

Officials are currently investigating the situation. Officials say weather is not being cited at this time, however, a change in natural light, such as the sun setting, may have been a factor.
