A man was sent to hospital with life-threatening injuries after the truck he was driving was hit by a C-Train on Thursday night.  

The accident happened around 11 p.m. at the intersection of 36th Street and 12th Avenue N.E., said duty Staff Sgt. Jay Judin.

"At this time it appears as if the driver went around the LRT arms in an attempt to beat the LRT. At this time alcohol is suspected," he said.

On Friday morning a vehicle drove into a downtown C-Train at 7th Avenue and 8th Street S.W.  

Police said no one was injured in that collision.  

The C-Train was moved off the main track so that there was no disruption to service.
