22 Year Old Cyclist Killed on Roseville Road
On September 24, 2013, at approximately 6:25 a.m., a male employee with the County of Sacramento was driving a 2005 Freightliner garbage truck on northbound Roseville Road just south of Oakhollow Way at approximately 35 mph.
The driver observed a bicyclist traveling southbound in the northbound bicycle lane. The bicyclist then began to ride across the northbound lanes in attempt to cross to the other side, directly in the path of the truck. The driver applied his brakes and attempted to steer to the right to avoid the bicyclist but was unable too. The bicyclist was transported to Mercy San Juan Medical Hospital where he later died.
The bicyclist was been identified as Tommy Narvaez, a 22 year old from Sacramento.
