On Wednesday, January 29, 2020, at 9:10 p.m., Barrie Police responded to a report of a single motor vehicle collision that had occurred on Georgian Drive in the City of Barrie.

Upon arrival at the scene, it was determined that a westbound motor vehicle lost control as it entered the curve in the road just west of the driveway to Georgian College. The motor vehicle left the roadway after mounting a snow bank on the north side of the road, struck a large directional road sign, rolled numerous times and came to rest in an open, snow covered area between Georgian Drive and Highway 400. 

A 17-year old female passenger from Barrie was taken to a local hospital by County of Simcoe Paramedic Services where a short time later she was pronounced deceased. A male driver was also taken to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The road was reopened at approximately 3:15 a.m. after the at scene collision investigation was completed.

As a result of the ongoing investigation, which was conducted by the Barrie Police Traffic Unit, a 17-year old male and 19-year old male were arrested on Sunday, February 16, 2020 and are each facing a charge of Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance Causing Death, contrary to section 320.13(3) of the Criminal Code of Canada.
