Three men were seriously injured early Friday morning when their car crashed and became wedged underneath the rear of a tractor trailer in East Elmhurst, according to police.

The black Volkswagen, holding a 19-year-old driver and his two passengers, was heading eastbound on Astoria Boulevard about 4:30 a.m. when it rear-ended a truck near 111th Street and got stuck under the back end of the trailer, cops said.

The driver and passengers were removed from the vehicle by emergency personnel. The driver and a 19-year-old passenger were taken to Elmhurst Hospital, and a 31-year-old passenger was taken to New York Hospital Queens, police said. All three men are still listed in serious condition.

The truck driver was not injured and the cause of the crash is still under investigation, according to police.
