SACRAMENTO -- A bicyclist was killed this morning in North Highlands after being hit by a garbage truck.

Tommy Narvaez, 22, was riding his bicycle southbound on Roseville Road just south of Oakhollow Way at about 6:25, when he crossed into the northbound lanes and drove into the path of the truck.

California Highway Patrol says the driver of the truck, who is a county employee, hit his brakes and tried to steer away from the bicyclist.

Narvaez was transported to Mercy San Juan Medical Hospital, where he later died.
