Police have charged an 82-year-old man from Barrie with careless driving after an SUV plowed into a shed at the back of a property on Tuesday afternoon at Livingstone Street West and Sunnidale Road.

" Initially, the SUV left the roadway and struck a fence and prior to that, police learned, there was another minor collision involving a motor vehicle that had occurred on Barwick Drive," according to a news release from police.

Police are also investigating a fail-to-remain collision that occurred just before 8:30 on Tuesday evening involving an SUV and a transport truck and trailer carrying new cars.

According to authorities, a truck on Dunlop Street West slowed and signalled to turn south onto Hart Drive, when it was struck by a an eastbound white Ford Explorer, which police say sped away from the area after striking the rear right of the trailer.

The truck driver pulled over on Hart Drive, and a short time later, a white Ford Explorer arrived and then left the scene without the drivers exchanging information.

Police are asking anyone who spots a similar vehicle with fresh front damage to get a licence plate and contact .

Under an hour later, officers were alerted about a collision at Bayfield Street and Rose Street involving a car, a pickup truck and a motorcycle.

"From the investigation that followed by members of the Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit, it has been determined that the motorcycle, which was northbound on Bayfield Street, entered the intersection as the passenger car was turning left onto Rose Street from southbound Bayfield Steet. The motorcycle operator, a 24-year-old male, collided with the car as it turned, was thrown from the motorcycle, and sustained a leg injury that is serious, but non-life-threatening. He was transported to a local hospital where he remains hospitalized for the injury he sustained," according to a police news release.

The road was closed for about four hours so police could investigate.
