The unidentified driver was hit Saturday by a person driving a silver or gray mid-sized SUV — possibly a Chevrolet Trailblazer, according to police. The moped was traveling in the west-bound bike lane when it was hit by the SUV from behind and was carried several hundred feet before separating. The SUV drove away westbound toward U.S. 395, police said.
The victim’s name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
