The Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has released the name of a bicyclist killed Sunday evening by a hit-and-run driver.

He was identified as Joseph Williams, 27, of Sacramento.

Williams was killed in a crash east of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, according to the California Highway Patrol.

There were no witnesses or description of the vehicle involved in the crash, which happened about 6 p.m., CHP Officer Daniel Webb said.
