Bicyclist dies after crash with Sacramento County garbage truck

A 22-year-old bicyclist died from his injuries suffered when he collided with a garbage truck in the predawn hours today.

The accident occurred about 6:30 a.m. when a Sacramento County truck driver was traveling northbound on Roseville Road near Oakhollow Drive. Tommy Narvaez of Sacramento was riding southbound facing traffic in the bike lane on the east side of the road.

The California Highway patrol said that as the truck driver got closer Narvaez decided to cross in front of him. The driver tried to swerve away from Narvaez but was not able to avoid a crash.

Narvaez was transported to the hospital with major head injury, according to CHP Officer Lizz Dutton. He was later pronounced dead.
