At 8:25 a.m., police were called to the area of Ottawa Street S. and Bedford Road in Kitchener for a collision. Police say there was just a scratch on the LRT and no injuries.
Then at 11:40 a.m., officers were called to King Street W. and Green Street in Kitchener. A white car going south on King Street attempted a U-turn at the intersection and was hit by the southbound LRT, police said.
There are no signs prohibiting U-turns at the intersection, however drivers can only turn left when the left turn signal is on.

A 27-year-old Waterloo woman has been charged with going through a red light.
