Runner struck by vehicle during race keeps running

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - A runner participating in the Diva's Half Marathon in North Myrtle Beach was struck by a vehicle Sunday. The runner had a “very minor abrasion” on her left elbow and was able to finish the race, said City Spokesman Pat Dowling.

The driver of the vehicle attempted to pass runners on 11th Avenue South when the runner was bumped.

The runner refused medical care at the scene of the accident because she wanted to finish the race, Dowling said.

The driver stopped voluntarily and spoke with police, who took her information, he added.

More information from the City of North Myrtle Beach is expected.
