Update: The intersection reopened shortly before 4 p.m., but the investigation is ongoing. 

Police say the male driver in the passenger vehicle had their injuries downgraded at hospital and has been released. 

"The intrusion was very deep into the passenger side, so there's no doubt we could have been dealing with a fatality or life-threatening (injuries if there had been a passenger)," said Barrie police communications co-ordinator Peter Leon.
