Calgary police were dispatched to another CTrain crash downtown and shut down service in both directions on 7th Avenue to clear the tracks.
The crash happened at 7th Avenue and 3 Street S.W. at about 11:00 a.m. Monday.
Shuttles were set up between City Hall & 7th Street S.W. to get riders around the crash.
There was one person in the vehicle who was not injured in the crash. No one on the train was injured.
Crews cleared the crash just after noon and service was resumed. Transit says people can expect some delays as service gets back up and running.
On Friday, two crashes happened between a CTrain and vehicle and also shut down the LRT line for a time.
Transit officials say all three incidents were due to the drivers' inattentive behavior.
