    The driver of an SUV slammed through a fence at a construction site for the Second Avenue subway on the Upper East Side Sunday afternoon, authorities said.

    The SUV ended up in a ditch at the work site on 95th Street and Second Avenue after colliding with another car at around 2 p.m. 

    Two people were removed from the vehicle and taken to New York Hospital with minor neck and back injuries.

    "From what I understand, it's 8 feet to the bottom of the Second Avenue subway tunnel, so he's lucky it stopped where it did," said Peter Moreno, who witnessed the crash.
