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.
