NEW HILL, N.C. -

A cyclist competing in the Ironman 70.3 race was injured when he ran into a car Sunday along the race route in New Hill.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said Sheila Morrison was driving 50 mph in a 45 mph zone when race officials attempted to slow her down.

Morrison then illegally passed the bicycle riders in a no-passing area around 9:15 a.m. before coming to a stop rather than slowing down.

Troopers said a bicyclist, 51-year-old Jon Segerstrom, ran into Morrison's car near New Hill Holleman and Shearon Harris roads.

Segerstrom lost some teeth and suffered back and neck pain, but the injuries weren't considered life threatening, troopers said.

Morrison is charged with careless and reckless driving, and failure to obey a traffic officer.
