A stolen car was involved in a hit and run with a Valley Line LRT train in southeast Edmonton during the Monday morning commute.
The Edmonton Police Service said the crash happened around 8 a.m. on 66 Street near the Whitemud Drive overpass.
The driver of the vehicle failed to obey traffic signage, struck the train and then fled on foot, police said.
Video obtained by Global News showed a man running away from the scene as the car was left running and damaged while sitting on a median beside the tracks.
The train was also damaged.
A canine team was brought in but police said they were not able to track down the suspect.
The grey car and its licence plate did not match, and police said the vehicle was confirmed to be stolen.
EPS said no injuries were reported.
