Calgary police investigate rollover on C-Train line

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a vehicle rollover on Calgary's C-Train line near Rundle Station Sunday night, according to police.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in a vehicle rollover on Calgary's C-Train line Sunday night, according to police.

Around 11:10 p.m. MT, police say a 21-year-old male drove his 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier onto the southbound C-Train tracks from 26 Avenue N.E. 

He continued driving south down the tracks for roughly 200 metres until he struck a pole, which caused his vehicle to flip on its roof. 

The car came to rest on top of the tracks directly beside the Rundle LRT Station.

The driver, the only one in the car, was relatively uninjured but was transported to the hospital to get checked out.

Police continue to investigate the collision, and charges are pending.  

The south LRT tracks had to be shut down while the vehicle was removed and the tracks inspected by the city's transit engineers.
