Investigation into Barrie crash that killed 6 young people continues

BARRIE, Ont. — Police in Barrie, Ont., continue to investigate a crash that left six young people dead over the weekend.

The force says the probe into the “tragic event” will take time to complete.

On Monday evening, family members were escorted by police to the lip of a large concrete pit in a construction zone where the crash took place and could be seen tossing flowers into it.

The City of Barrie says the intersection has been closed since the spring and the area is currently the site of a municipal construction project.
