Liberty Classic favourites hit by vehicle

By Mark Zalewski, North American Editor in Philadelphia

T-Mobile's Ina Teutenberg and Judith Arndt, easily the two pre-race favourites for Sunday's Liberty Classic, were involved in a vehicle accident while training on the course Saturday morning. Luckily the speeds were low with no critical injuries. However Arndt did go to hospital and reportedly was released after being treated for a broken finger.

The two were riding ahead of their group coming to an intersection. A vehicle apparently did not see the pair and turned in front of them, causing Teutenberg to crash into the car. Arndt's hand was caught in Teutenberg's rear wheel when she flipped and caused the broken finger.

At this point it seems that Teutenberg is only suffering from minor scrapes and is expected to race tomorrow. Arndt's race status is still unclear and will likely be a race time decision. No information whether citations were issued in the incident.
