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