A West Branch man was injured on Thursday when the bike he was riding was hit from behind by a pick-up truck.

The Iowa State Patrol says 60-year-old Richard Allen Wagner was headed east on County Road F-44, on the east edge of West Branch, at around 4:52 p.m. Thursday when he was hit from behind by a pick-up driven by 34-year-old Thomas John Spielbauer of  West Liberty.
