An NYPD traffic enforcement agent miraculously survived after being struck by a tractor-trailer in Astoria Tuesday.

The agent was directing traffic in front of 25-15 Broadway at around 10:30 a.m. when she was hit by the big rig.

The truck driver, who was parked on the side of the road, struck her while he was pulling out onto the roadway, police said.

The victim was caught beneath the vehicle before it came to a stop, police said.

The agent, 48, remained pinned under the truck but was eventually rescued by a team of FDNY firefighters, video footage shows.

She was transported to Elmhurst Hospital with back and neck pain but was not seriously injured, police said.

The 51-year-old male driver remained at the scene.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Outdoor dining is such a hazard in nyc especially in Astoria. Traffic is dangerous and a nightmare. Some restaurants are creating upper level dining on top of the street dining area. Sidewalks are bombarded with sidewalk dining and people. I am so glad our neighborhood is much quieter.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
