One man was killed and two others were injured when a car crashed into the New Pamir Auto Body Shop (pictured in an earlier photo).

A car slammed into an auto body shop near Citi Field Tuesday, leaving one dead and two injured.

The vehicle’s 52-year-old driver was heading southbound on 126th Street between 35th and 36th avenues around 11:40 a.m. when his 1992 Toyota Corolla rear-ended another car, said police.

After the impact, the Toyota veered across the northbound lanes into New Pamir Auto Body Shop, located at 35-01 126th Street. The car struck a pedestrian in front of the shop and two men inside of it.

All three victims were taken to New York Hospital Queens, said police

One of the victims, a 33-year-old who was standing in the auto shop, was pronounced dead.

The pedestrian, identified as a 30-year-old man, is in serious condition with severe body trauma. The third victim, 34, is in stable condition with body trauma.

According to published reports, the man killed was a worker at the auto body shop. Another victim and worker may have his legs amputated.

Both vehicles involved in the accident remained at the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
