The search is on for a white Ford Explorer, model years 2007-2009, that Barrie Police say did not stick around following a collision in the city's north end.

Police say the crash happened Tuesday on Bayfield Street, just south of Heather Street.

"Upon arrival at the scene, police learned that the vehicle responsible was exiting from a parking lot on the eastside of Bayfield Street just after 2:00 p.m., when it struck a red motor vehicle that was stopped in the in northbound turn lane for Heather Street.
