Collison between car, Valley Line LRT prompts questions about no crossing arms
The new Valley Line LRT is a new style of transit in Edmonton and drivers are going to have to get used to no crossing arms and obeying signs to not turn right on red lights. As Lisa MacGregor reports, there will be some growing pains - as was evident after a collision this past weekend. – Jan 23, 2023

Edmonton’s LRT Valley Line and a car collided Saturday afternoon right outside Bonnie Doon Centre mall at 82 Avenue and 83 Street.

Police said the train and car were both headed south on 83 Street when the car turned right on a red light in front of the train.
