Starter spun but didn't crank engine.

Last night the wife and I were leaving Wal-Mart and when I turned the key over the starter spun but it didn't actually turn the engine. Tried again and the truck started up like normal.

Anybody else have this happen? I'm guessing the starter is crapping out but I don't want to but another one without making sure something else couldn't cause the starter to do that.

Have the starter checked at auto parts store. It could be the starter starting to go.
