Emergency responders work to free a female victim from beneath a tractor-trailer in Queens.

After becoming lodged underneath a large truck in Fresh Meadows, a female victim was transported by EMS to a local hospital in critical condition early Saturday morning, authorities said.

On Oct. 14 at around 2 a.m., emergency responders received reports of a car trapped underneath a tractor-trailer on the Clearview Expressway and 73rd Avenue Exit 3 southbound.

EMS arrived at the scene, removed an injured female victim from the car and transported her to New York-Presbyterian/Queens in critical condition, an FDNY spokesperson said. One additional stable patient refused medical attention at the scene.

The FDNY could not confirm whether the tractor-trailer was parked or in motion at the time of the entrapment.

The incident occurred on the border of the 107th and 111th precincts. An NYPD spokesperson could not confirm whether authorities were investigating the incident.
