Barrie police say the pair’s grey Toyota was leaving a Tim Horton’s on Mapleview in the area of Veteran’s Drive when it was hit by a black BMW driven by a 17 year old.

The crash happened just before 7 p.m.

The mother was pronounced dead at the scene. Her son was taken to RVH. The driver of the BMW was also taken to RVH and was released with minor injuries.
