NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – An off-duty NYPD was seriously injured when the car he was in was T-boned by another vehicle in Queens late Friday night.

The victim was driving a Nissan Altima on Nashville Boulevard, near Lucas Street, in Springfield Gardens around midnight when he was struck by a Nissan Maxima.

Police wouldn’t confirm that the victim was with the NYPD, but sources tell 1010 WINS that he is a 34-year-old member of the department.

The force of the impact caused the Altima to crash into two parked cars and then a pole, police said.

The officer was ejected out of the Altima and was found lying on the ground when emergency responders arrived, according to sources.

Two men who were in the Maxima suffered minor injuries in the crash, police said.

All three men were taken to Jamaica Hospital, where the off-duty officer was listed in serious but stable condition. The two other men were in stable condition Saturday.

No arrests have been made as an investigation into the crash continues.
