A driver found the body of a bicyclist yesterday morning along this section of Golden State near Jefferson.
CHP investigators now say 36-year-old Gurpreet Bisla drove his big rig into the back of the victim's bike.
The 57-year-old man was knocked into tall bushes along the shoulder.
Officers say Bisla left the scene, but evidence they found led to his arrest last night.
He's booked in jail on felony hit and run charges.
