TRAFFIC ALERT: NB Hwy 400 reopens in Barrie

Fatal collision closed lanes for three hours

 All north and southbound lanes of Highway 400 in Barrie are now open after a three-vehicle collision left one dead.

Provincial Police Sgt. Kerry Schmidt says one of the vehicles involved in Friday afternoon's accident was a motorcycle.

All northbound lanes and some southbound ones were closed at Dunlop Street around 5 p.m. but opened about three hours later.

The closures came as many headed up to cottage country for the weekend.

    Please stop calling it a "Nightmare" drive into cottage country......someone DIED!! People need to learn to be patient! Yes, I want to get north too, but it's something I have no control over and it is definitely not a "nightmare" as I will be able to make it home to my loved ones, unlike the poor person who was killed!!!

      @Angry Jill Angry Jill? You poor soul.
      I have to laugh at the jerks that were ticketed for driving down the shoulder blocking any emergency personnel from getting to the scene. I hope they are fined and get demerit points.
