Eyewitnesses say the silver SUV was traveling westbound on 95th Street when another car ran a red light and crashed into it head on. That sent the SUV on an out of control path straight for the construction site of the new tunnel.
Witnesses say the man was a bit shaken up, but managed to make it out of the car by himself. Fortunately, the car got stuck where it did - the tunnel goes down about 80 feet.
Two people suffered minor injuries. One of the victims went to New York Hospital, and one refused medical attention.
