Of all the construction sites that deserve a driver’s undivided attention upon approach, New York City’s Second Avenue Subway likely deserves the most.

As we’ve shown you before, the cavernous digging going on beneath the surface at this site is like a scene of of Journey to the Center of the Earth. Not exactly something you’d want to drive headlong into.

Yet, that’s exactly what a driver of an SUV did over the weekend. According to a report from NBC 4 New York, the driver collided with another car and crashed through a fence at the site before ending up in a ditch.

Two people were removed from the SUV and treated at 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,” witness Peter Moreno, told NBC 4.

Lucky indeed, judging by this photo…
