One man died Friday south of Pixley after being hit by a car while riding his bicycle north on Road 128 south of Avenue 84.
Norma V. Valladares, 40, of Earlimart, was driving north on the same road about 8:20 a.m. when she hit the 68-year-old bicyclist from Earlimart, the California Highway Patrol said.
As Valladares began to pass the bicyclist, the man turned his bicycle to the left and collided into the right side of the 2008 Infinity G35, the CHP said.
The impact threw the bicyclist onto the road and he died at the scene.
Never miss a local story.
The CHP said Valladares was driving at 35 mph when she hit the man, who was not wearing a helmet.
The collision is under investigation.
