Police said a man survived being hit by a train Tuesday night.

Police said they were called to the 1400 block of East Archer at about 9:30 about someone yelling. They found a train stopped in the area and the railroad employees told them the train had hit someone who was lying on the tracks.

Officers found a man between Elwood and Guthrie Avenues. They said he had a severely broken right leg and head trauma, but EMSA paramedics didn't believe the injuries were life-threatening.
