NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One person was killed Tuesday morning after a car crashed into an auto body shop in Queens, 1010 WINS has learned.

A Toyota crashed into the shop at 126th Street and 35th Avenue in Willets Point after hitting a Mercedes, 1010 WINS’ Sonia Rincon reported.

The incident happened around 11:40 a.m.  Several workers were injured and one, a 33-year-old, was crushed by the car he was working on and killed.

Of the injured, a 30-year-old whose legs were crushed is in serious condition and a third worker, a 34-year-old, is listed in stable condition.

The driver of the Mercedes jumped into action and helped one of the victims, Rincon reported. That driver and the owner of an adjacent auto body shop believe the driver of the Toyota was going too fast.
