A 10-year-old girl died and two adults were injured after an out-of-control SUV crashed into a Queens car wash, police said.

The black SUV barreled into the business on Beach Channel Drive and Dix Avenue in Far Rockaway around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to police.

The young girl, who was a pedestrian, was pronounced dead at the scene. Two other people were seriously injured, including the 35-year-old female driver and a 33-year-old woman, but none of their injuries were considered to be life-threatening. The two adults were taken to Jamaica Hospital.

Inspectors from the Department of Buildings were at the scene, finding that the crash dislodged a brick support column, leading to a partial collapse of the building.

An investigation is ongoing.
