SONOMA (CBS SF) — The California Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a white Dodge utility truck that struck a bicyclist in Sonoma Tuesday morning.
The truck struck 20-year-old Calef Warton, of Sonoma, around 8 a.m. at Grove Street and Arnold Drive, CHP Officer Anna Paulson said.
Warton was riding west on Grove Street within the crosswalk at Arnold Drive when the utility truck struck him. The truck was traveling east on Grove Street to northbound Arnold Drive, Paulson said.
