Yesterday afternoon, just before 4:00 p.m., Barrie Police responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision on Bayfield St., north of Wellington St. involving a sport utility vehicle (SUV) and a stopped school bus.
Upon arrival at the scene, police learned that the bus, which had no passengers on it, had been stopped in the curb lane north of the Mid-Town Centre Plaza when it was struck by the 81-year-old driver of the SUV. He was transported to local hospital by County of Simcoe Paramedics with what are described as non-life-threatening injuries.
Bayfield St. was closed for a short period of time to allow for police to safely investigate the collision and for tow trucks to remove the involved motor vehicles. The investigation remains ongoing by members of the Barrie Police Service Traffic Unit.
