PHOENIX -- Phoenix police have located the family of a bicyclist who was hit by a car over the weekend.

Jose Garcia Hernandez, 49, is in extremely critical condition with a head injury.

Sgt. Trent Crump said Hernandez was riding a blue mountain bike near Indian School Road and 67th Avenue at 5:30 p.m. Sunday when he attempted to cross mid-block behind a truck and failed to yield to a 1995 Saturn.

The driver tried to stop but struck Hernandez, who was not wearing a helmet.

On Monday, police asked for the public's help locating his next of kin. Hernandez's roommate came forward and police were able to locate his family.
