Police review surveillance videos as investigation into fail-to-remain fatality continues

Investigators would like to speak to the driver or anyone who may have been a passenger in a mid-sized dark blue pickup truck that is shown in the pictures and video being released

The search for the driver of a vehicle that was involved in a fail-to-remain fatality last Friday morning continues as police examine surveillance videos.
The collision took place in the wee hours of Friday morning, about 2:45 a.m., at the intersection of Wellington and Toronto streets. When police arrived, it was determined the victim had been struck by a vehicle that had failed to remain at the scene. The victim, a 33-year-old Barrie man, was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Police continue to examine a number of surveillance videos. As a result, one such video, which is being released today, has identified a vehicle of interest that was observed travelling westbound on Wellington Street and which stopped for the red light at Bayfield Street at 2:42 a.m. When the light at the intersection turns green, this vehicle continues westbound through the intersection and along Wellington Street.
Investigators would like to speak to the driver or anyone who may have been a passenger in a mid-sized dark blue pickup truck that is shown in the pictures and video being released. From the video, it is evident that there is something large in the bed of the truck that extends well above the side panels and rear fenders.
Local businesses or homes in the Wellington Street area east and west of Bayfield Street who have video surveillance equipment are encouraged to review their footage in the timeframe between 2:30 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. to see if they may have captured any images of this pickup truck. Any video surveillance that assist in this investigation should be provided to the police immediately.
Police are asking anyone who may have additional information or information which could assist in identifying the vehicle or the driver involved to contact Constable Hale of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 extension 2913 or Sergeant John Brooks at extension 2911.  The officers can also be reached by email at: mhale@barriepolice.ca or jbrooks@barriepolice.ca.
