Andrew B. Davoli is lucky to be alive.
According to police, the 25-year-old Washington Township resident was sitting on train tracks in West Deptford early Tuesday when he was hit by a freight train.
He was saved, police said, because he fell between the rails and the train rolled over him.
After the train came to a halt, conductor Chris Herff walked back, fearing he would find a body, but was relieved to see Davoli crawling out from under a car, police said.
West Deptford Police Chief Samuel DiSimone said Davoli was taken to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries that included a laceration to the right side of the head, and leg and back pains.
