SIU investigating crash near Simcoe

There was one two months ago.”Prior to the collision, a police officer “stopped to investigate” a vehicle on Norfolk Street North at about 12:55 a.m. The vehicle left the scene heading north on Highway 24. The vehicle was later involved in the crash. The SIU was notified due to the earlier interaction.The road remained closed throughout the morning.jrobinson@postmedia.com read more
