Police are still investigating the beating in Jamaica that left an Uber driver hospitalized in critical condition early Sunday morning.

The attack took place at about 12:20 a.m. near the intersection of Jamaica Avenue and 138th Street in the 103rd Precinct.

The NYPD said the 41-year-old victim had been in a verbal dispute with an unidentified person when he was struck in the head with a glass bottle.

EMS personnel transported the victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.
