QUEENS — A livery cab careened into a corner bodega in Hollis Friday morning, leaving seven people injured, the FDNY said.

The taxi was driving west on Jamaica Avenue shortly after 8 a.m., sources said, when it was cut off by another vehicle, hopped the curb, and slammed La Villa Deli & Grocery at 190th Street, just one store over from a driving school, authorities said.

"When I saw the car coming, I said, 'Oh, my God,'" said Pascual Reyes, 62, who was inside the deli when the crash occurred. "I jumped and ran. I was shocked. I was thinking about losing my life."

The seven victims were taken to Jamaica Hospital, Long Island Jewish Hospital and Queens General Hospital for minor injuries, officials said.

The second car did not remain at the scene, authorities said.
