Nilay Zaman, 4, and brother Arman were injured in a crash in Queens Wednesday night.

A 4-year-old gravely injured by a car gave signs she may be winning her battle to live, relatives said.
Nilay Zaman was crossing 101st Ave. in Woodhaven (Editor note: actually Ozone Park) on Wednesday with her mother and 5-year-old brother when a Jaguar turned from 81st St. and struck the family, cops said.
Nilay was critically hurt, suffering skull fractures and chest trauma.
"There's so much broken bones," said her father, Hasan Zaman, 30, a cabbie.
"We're praying to God that he will help us."
But there was good news yesterday.
"She's a little better," he said. "She's improving. She can hear us."
Zaman is keeping vigil for his daughter in the intensive care unit at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell. His wife and son are out of the hospital.
Deborah Johnson, 53, the driver of the 2003 Jaguar that hit the child, remained at the scene, and no charges are expected.
