By Christina Santucci

A driver whose SUV collided with a light pole by the Queens Midtown Tunnel Tuesday afternoon was listed in critical condition later that night, police said.

According to a spokesman for the FDNY, emergency responders received a call at 4:57 p.m. about the crash and responded to 51st Avenue and 11th Street, a side street bordering the tunnel.

A Bridge and Tunnel officer had performed CPR on the man until medics arrived, the New York Post reported.

The man, whose age was not available, was then taken in cardiac arrest to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, according to the Fire Department spokesman.

At about 10 p.m., a spokesman for the NYPD said the driver was listed in critical condition and no one else had been injured.
