LEBANON, ORE.-- A bicyclist is in the hospital after police said he was struck by a pickup truck Thursday. Police said the man suffered potentially life-threatening injuries.

The crash happened around 6 p.m. Thursday, at the intersection of South 2nd Street and West Rose Street.

Lebanon police said they found the bicyclist lying face down on the ground. They said he appeared to be unconscious and his bike was heavily damaged. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police said driver of a Toyota Tacoma was cooperating. The driver told police he had stopped at the stop sign before continuing on when suddenly he collided with the bicyclist. He told police he didn't see the bicyclist.

Officials said drugs are not a factor in the crash. However, they said, it is possible the bicyclist was intoxicated or had taken medication prior to the crash.

They also added that the bicyclist was wearing dark clothing and didn't have reflective any material nor was he wearing a helmet. 

It was dark and raining heavily at the time which, according to police, caused limited visibility.
