COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A woman on the last leg of a cross-country bicycle ride to raise awareness for brain injuries was killed along with a fellow cyclist after an SUV collided with them on a rural highway, officials said Monday.

Lee Anne Barry, who had ridden thousands of miles since beginning the ride in the summer, and Thomas Hoskins, who joined her on the last portion of the journey, were hit Sunday on U.S. Highway 521 in Lancaster County, just south of the North Carolina line, Coroner Mike Morris said.

Hoskins, 49, was pronounced dead at the scene, and Barry, 43, died later at a hospital, Morris said.
