A cyclist has been killed after being hit by a truck on the M4 in Sydney's west.

A group of four cyclists were riding in the breakdown lane of the M4 when they were struck by a B-double truck that veered into them about 7.40amtoday, police said.

The male truck driver was taken to hospital for mandatory blood and urine tests.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.

All westbound lanes of the M4 are closed and traffic is being diverted on to the Northern Road off-ramp, where motorists can cross Northern Road and re-enter the M4 westbound.

Motorists are urged to avoid the area if possible.

A report will be prepared for the coroner, police said.

The police haven't found any witnesses to the crash yet, but looking at the twisted bikes lying on the road is harrowing. Man I hate trucks.
