On Friday, March 10, 2023, at 7:04 p.m., Barrie Police responded to a report of a three-car crash on County Rd. 27 between Humber Street and Muirfield Drive.
From the investigation that followed, responding officers have determined that 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 involved drivers were transported by County of Simcoe Paramedic Services to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, however, one driver was later transferred to a Toronto area trauma centre.
The collision was investigated by members of the Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit and the road remained closed for approximately 6 ½ hours while the ongoing investigation was conducted.
