Bicyclist, 77, killed by hit-and-run driver in Sutter County

A bicyclist was killed by a hit-and-run driver early Wednesday north of Yuba City, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The 77-year-old still-unidentified bicyclist was declared dead at the scene about 4 a.m. on East Onstott Road north of Pease Road. His damaged bicycle was nearby.

Evidence found at the scene indicates that the vehicle that hit him may be a late 1980s or early 1990s GMC or Chevrolet pickup or sport-utility vehicle. The hit-and-run vehicle likely has front-end damage, including a broken headlight and broken right-front running light.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the Yuba-Sutter CHP office at 530-674-5141.
