SUV Crashes into Second Ave Subway Construction Site

A Honda CRV crashed into the Second Avenue subway construction site Sunday after being broadsided by an SUV that ran a red light at East 95th Street just after 2:30 p.m Sunday. 

The impact sent the silver CR-V sailing into the construction site, where it sank head-first into the chasm and was nearly swallowed up.

The FDNY says one person was taken to New York Hospital with minor neck and back injuries, while another refused medical attention.

The driver of the Toyota SUV refused medical attention and was ticketed for driving with a suspended license and running a red light, police officials said.

The Second Ave. subway line has been under construction since 2007.
