North Carolina state troopers reported that two bicyclists suffered personal injuries in a collision with a car on N.C. Highway 96, north of Selma, on the evening of November 12.
Troopers said 37-year-old Marie Jania was driving the car and moved into the southbound lane to pass cyclists 17-year-old Renny Barnard and 20-year-old Richard Baker, who were northbound on N.C. 96, according to troopers. At the same time, the cyclists were moving into the southbound lane to allow the car to pass them. The car struck the rear of the bicycles.
Barnard received transport to WakeMed in Raleigh to undergo treatment for injuries that were considered serious, but not life-threatening. Baker was taken to Johnston Regional Memorial Hospital in Smithfield for treatment.
