The crash occurred about 10:30 a.m. The vehicle driver did not stop. Unfortunately, it appears that there aren't any witnesses to the accident. No information is available about the vehicle who struck the bicyclist. Anyone who has any information that can assist in this investigation should call the County Sheriff's department.
