A bicyclist died after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in southern Sacramento County.

The 25-year-old man was riding his bike westbound on 47th Avenue west of Franklin Boulevard late Monday night when he was struck by a car. The bicyclist was in the bike lane when hit.

The cyclist was thrown to the roadway shoulder, suffering major injuries. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
