The accident happened around 5 p.m. Tuesday at Road 36 and Avenue 400 near Kingsburg.
The C.H.P. said a red Nissan Maxima tried to pass the 62-year-old man on his bike when the bicyclist turned in front of the car. The driver struck the man on the bike and then drove away.
An Action News viewer shot video of the helicopter taking the victim to the hospital. His injuries are unknown.
Authorities say the driver appears to be a man in his twenties and had a ten-year-old passenger in the front seat. The Nissan Maxima is also missing its right mirror.
