A downtown C-Train line has now been cleared after a collision Friday morning between a car and train.

There were no injuries in the crash at Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue S.W. but Calgary Transit officials say users on the affected 201 line should expect some delays as service returns to normal.

There's no word yet on what caused the crash.

However, officials said the train signals were working at the time of the collision.
