MESA, AZ (CBS5) -

A motorcyclist was injured after he was struck by a pickup truck Friday morning on the Beeline Highway in Mesa.

The pickup truck failed to yield at the intersection of State Route 87 and Mesa Drive and pulled in front of the southbound motorcyclist, said Raul Garcia of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The motorcyclist was able to brake hard, skidding about 90 feet, before colliding with the rear passenger side of the truck just before 7 a.m.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Arizona DPS were investigating.

Garcia said the motorcyclist complained of lower body injuries.

The pickup truck's driver was cited for failure to yield from a stop sign, Garcia said.
