Three teens riding in a stolen car struck an unmarked police cruiser — and then smashed into a parked box truck in Brooklyn early Wednesday — leaving one of them clinging to life.

The trio was inside a stolen Chevy Malibu around 2:30 a.m. when they ran the red light and struck the NYPD vehicle at Mother Gaston Boulevard and Livonia Avenue in Brownsville, cops said.

Two cops were taken to the Kings County Hospital Center, and have since been treated and released for minor injuries, police said.

Minutes later, around 2:30 a.m., the Malibu driver rammed into an unoccupied, parked box truck at Atkins Avenue and Linden Boulevard East New York, cops said.

The teens were taken to Maimonides Medical Center — one of them, a passenger, in critical condition.
