A 22 year-old woman was left in serious condition after a chain reaction accident in Queens sent her plunging 30 feet off of the Whitestone Expressway.

Officials say the victim and another person pulled over to help a disabled vehicle on the side of the Whitestone Expressway in Flushing at about 5 a.m.

That’s when another vehicle, driven by an off-duty NYPD lieutenant, crashed into the stopped vehicles. The victim was hurled off the overpass and landed 30 feet below.

The driver who struck the vehicle was not charged.
