One Crash After Another After Another in Barrie

Woman Charged With Fail To Remain

A woman has been charged after a series of crashes in Barrie.

The first crash happened a few minutes before 6:00 Tuesday evening; a three vehicle collision at the intersection of Bayfield and Wellington Streets in Barrie, where police say there were no injuries. One vehicle was damaged to the point where the driver was told she would need a tow truck to take her to a collision reporting centre. Instead, investigators say she drove off.

As the driver left the scene, it is said her already damaged vehicle was involved in a second collsion on Wellington Street near Drury Lane. The driver lost control of the vehicle, and collided with a home on Drury Lane.

While initially believing the woman was impaired, officers on scene believe the driver may have suffered a medical issue. Despite this, the 39-year-old Barrie woman is facing a charge of Dangerous Driving and Fail to Remain in relation to the second collision. No charges were laid in connection to the first.
