A minivan slammed into a therapy center on Queens Boulevard in Woodside on Thursday, injuring four people, according to the FDNY.

The green Honda Odyssey jumped the curb and hit the Hyperbaric Medicine & Wound Center of Queens at 65-35 Queens Blvd., shattering a window at about 9:21 a.m. Four people were taken to Elmhurst Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, the FDNY said.

According to published reports, the vehicle was trying to avoid hitting another car and swerved, causing the crash. The car knocked a hole into the wall and was wedged halfway inside.

Kids Time, a daycare center next door, was evacuated as a precaution, published reports indicated.
