A bicyclist sustained major injuries Wednesday night in southeast Fresno when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver, the California Highway Patrol reported.

The collision happened about 7:30 p.m. as Jose Godinez Garcia, 44, was westbound on Church Avenue just east of Gearhart Avenue on his bike. The driver of a pickup pulling a trailer veered into the back of the bicycle, throwing Garcia to the ground. The driver fled the scene. Garcia was taken to Community Regional Medical Center.
