NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Three teen girls are injured, with one in critical condition after their car crashed into a pole in Queens on Wednesday, police say.

FDNY had to rescue one of the victims that was trapped in the Honda at the corner of Cook Avenue and 73rd Place in Middle Village.

The vehicle's doors had to be removed and the teens were rushed to the hospital, police say.

Officials say the victims had just left work at Christ The King Kids, a daycare facility inside the campus of Christ The King High School, which is less than a mile from the crash site. 

All three victims were rushed to the hospital where one victim, 17-year-old Breanna Popovici is in critical condition. 

A 16-year-old victim remains in serious condition and a third victim suffered minor injuries.

CBS2 reports that Popovici live-streamed a video moments before her friend crashed.
