Lynsey Horne, a 22-year-old resident of nearby Salem, was transported to East Alabama Medical Clinic by ambulance after a 911 call to the Auburn Police Division was made at 9:10 a.m.
Horne suffered no injuries during the incident.
The eastbound CSX train ran over Horne at the railroad crossing at Ross and Gay streets, behind the Auburn Post Office.
“She was a petite female, so fortunately she lied between the rails,” said Auburn Police Captain Lorenza Dorsey.
Dorsey said he has never seen something like this before.
“I’ve been here 28 years and never had a train run over an individual between the tracks,” Dorsey said.
Horne was arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct for disrupting the train’s schedule.
