A 51-year-old woman was in grave condition Friday after a van jumped a curb on a Queens street and plowed her into a building, police and witnesses said.
The van lost control after it collided with another van at 103rd Ave. and 93rd St. in Ozone Park about 2:30 p.m., cops and witnesses said.
"I looked up and saw the white van crashing into the stoop," said David Quintana, who was reading a paper nearby. "I saw bricks flying everywhere. There was a woman lying unconscious in a pool of blood."
The woman was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she was in critical condition.
Francisco Mena, 49, the driver of the van that didn't hit the woman, was later arrested for driving without a license.
Bibi Ibrahim, who lives next door to where the van crashed, said it was just a matter of time with so many drivers racing through the stop signs.
"They should really put a light in there," she said.
