JACKSON HEIGHTS, Queens – Two men were shot near a Queens hospital in an apparent road rage incident Thursday morning, police said.

Drivers in two cars got into an argument near Roosevelt Avenue and 79th Street, a block away from Elmhurst General Hospital around 4 a.m., police said.

One of the drivers got out of the car and began firing shots at the sedan, striking a man, 25 and the passenger, 23.

The gunman sped off as the man and the passenger drove to Elmhurst Hospital, but ended up crashing into another parked car about a half-mile away.

The two got out and walked the rest of the way, police said.

The man was shot in the leg and the passenger was shot in the ankle, police said. Both are expected to survive.

Police have not released a description of the gunman.
