A serious hit-and-run incident has occurred in Barrie, leaving a woman in hospital with significant injuries. The incident took place early on Wednesday morning, around 6:40, as the victim was riding her bicycle at the intersection of Leacock Drive and Edgehill Drive. Without stopping or offering assistance, the offending vehicle swiftly absconded from the crime scene.
The victim, a 45-year-old woman, suffered serious but thankfully non-life-threatening injuries due to this horrifying event. As investigators comb through the details, it becomes increasingly clear that the offending vehicle, suspected to be a dark-coloured SUV – possibly a Mitsubishi – was last observed heading north on Leacock Drive.
The law enforcement officials investigating the case believe there’s likely notable damage to the front passenger sideview mirror and fender of the vehicle in question. This detail has been highlighted in hopes that it may help identify the rogue vehicle and bring the perpetrator to justice.
