Barrie police provide update on weekend crash that injured three

Police say the incident started when 'a southbound motor vehicle crossed over into the northbound lanes'

Barrie police have provided more details about a Friday crash that sent three to hospital, including one with critical injuries.

Just after 7:00 p.m., officers responded to a report of a three-car crash on County Road 27 (Townline Road) between Humber Street and Muirfield Drive.

After investigating, police say “a southbound motor vehicle crossed over into the northbound lanes and struck a northbound sport utility vehicle (SUV). At the same time, a third motor vehicle, which was travelling northbound and approaching the collision scene, struck one of the involved vehicles. At the time of the crash, the roads were snow-covered and it was snowing.”

All three drivers were sent to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, but one driver was later transferred to a Toronto area trauma centre.

The road was closed for around six hours while the traffic unit investigated.
