    Constable Jacob was headed North on Highway 11 outside Barrie, Ontario. Around 8:00 PM, a vehicle travelling Southbound lost control, hit a light pole and was sent crashing into the northbound lane narrowly missing 2 vehicles.

    Constable Jacob had no warning and was hit head on. Both drivers were killed instantly.

    As a result this tragedy the Ontario Ministry of Transportation made the highway 4 lanes divided in each direction.
