A 35-year-old Port Authority officer is in the hospital after his car collided with a guardrail on an exit ramp of the Ed Koch-Queensboro Bridge in Manhattan.

Police say the victim's car hit the guardrail near the corner of 60th Street and Second Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

According to police, a passerby was able to pull the man out of the car just before it caught fire.

The driver was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

The Port Authority says the man underwent surgery and is now recovering.
