Occurrence Type: Erratic Driving Leads to Criminal Charges
Occurrence #: BA18043143
Date: Wednesday, August 28, 2019 - 8:30pm

On Tuesday August 28, 2018, Barrie Police arrested and charged a 46-year-old Barrie man with Dangerous Driving, following a single motor vehicle collision.

Just after 8:30 p.m. police arrived in the area of Little Avenue and Garden Drive, in the City of Barrie, and located a demolished 2016 four-door Tesla.

A further investigation determined the vehicle had been travelling at a high rate of speed westbound on Little Avenue prior to the crash. When the vehicle crossed the steep incline leading up to the railway tracks, just north of Huronia Road, the vehicle became airborne and crashed over 100 feet into the opposing lane. The impact of the crash forced the vehicle to skid across the roadway and hit a tree in a nearby school parking lot.

The driver and passenger were taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. The driver will appear in a Barrie Court of Justice on October 1, 2018.
