A Barrie man has been charged after a fatal hit-and-run that involved a pedestrian on Bayfield Street North in Springwater, Ont., in September.
On Sept. 15, at about 10:50 p.m., Huronia West OPP was called to Bayfield Street North for a woman walking a dog and waving at vehicles.
Before police arrived, an on-duty OPP officer and an off-duty Barrie police officer came across the woman, who was lying on the road.
OPP say the officers tried to provide first aid. The woman was subsequently transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Police said the woman was hit by a car that subsequently left the scene. At the time of the occurrence, police were searching for a suspect, and that person has since been identified.
On Tuesday, Kraig Robertson, 22, from Barrie, was charged with failure to stop after an accident resulting in death.
