Gas Instead of Brake, Building Bears The Brunt

Police Say Elderly Man Struck Building in North end Barrie

Nobody was hurt following a crash in a north end Barrie parking lot… unless you count the building that was hit. Barrie Police say around 10:30 yesterday morning, an 86-year-old man hit the gas instead of the brake, and struck the back of the Shoppers Drug Mart store on Bayfield. The elderly Tiny Township hasn’t been charged, but police continue to investigate.
