We consider a nonlinear system of partial differential equations which describes the dynamics of two types of cell densities with contact inhibition. After a change of variables the system turns out to be parabolic-hyperbolic and admits travelling wave solutions which solve a 3D dynamical system. Compared to the scalar Fisher-KPP equation, the structure of the travelling wave solutions is surprisingly rich and to unravel part of it is the aim of the present paper. In particular, we consider a parameter regime where the minimal wave velocity of the travelling wave solutions is negative. We show that there exists a branch of travelling wave solutions for any nonnegative wave velocity, which is not connected to the travelling wave solution with minimal wave velocity. The travelling wave solutions with nonnegative wave velocity are strictly positive, while the solution with minimal one is segregated in the sense that the product $uv$ vanishes.
