QUEENS — A car ran into a building in Middle Village on Wednesday evening, fire officials said.

The incident occurred around 7 p.m., when the driver of the vehicle plowed into a building at 78-09 Metropolitan Ave., a fire spokesman said.

The driver suffered minor injuries in the crash but was not sent to the hospital, he added.
