Bicyclist killed in hit-and-run crash in south Sacramento, police say


A bicyclist was killed in a hit-and-run collision Wednesday morning on South Watt Avenue near Fruitridge Road, the Sacramento Police Department said.

The victim was a male, but no other identifying details were available, and there was not yet information available regarding a suspect vehicle, Police Department spokeswoman Linda Matthew said. The collision occurred sometime before 7 a.m., but the exact timeline was not immediately clear, Matthew said.

The Police Department’s major collision team was on scene investigating the collision as of 7:30 a.m.

“We can piece together whatever evidence we get from there,” Matthew said.

South Watt reopened after closing in both directions from Fruitridge Road to Osage Road until about 10:30 a.m.
