Two NYPD traffic agents were injured early Saturday when a drunken driver slammed his car head-on into their marked vehicle in Queens, police said.

The unidentified agents were driving on Myrtle Ave. near 74thSt. in Glendale at about 4 a.m. when a westbound 2008 Honda crossed into oncoming traffic and crashed into them. One of the agents suffered a broken hip while the other sustained head injuries, police sources said.

Paramedics rushed them to Jamaica Hospital, where they were listed in stable condition, police said.

Aaron Webb, 27, was arrested at the scene. His blood-alcohol level was above the state's legal limit of .08, sources said.

Webb, of the East Village, was charged with driving while intoxicated and without a license, among other charges.
