Investigation into Barrie, Ont., crash that killed six 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.

Police have said four men and two women who were reported missing on Saturday were believed to be the six people found dead in the crash early Sunday, which had not been reported when officers came across the scene.

Those missing have been identified by police as 22-year-old Curtis King, 23-year-old River Wells, 22-year-old Jason O’Connor, 22-year-old Luke West, 20-year-old Jersey Mitchell and 21-year-old Haley Marin.
