A woman about to pick up her vehicle at a Queens car wash Monday was killed when an attendant driving a Jeep out of the car wash bay mowed her down, police said.

The 54-year-old victim was outside the Crossbay Car Wash & Lube on Cross Bay Blvd. at Gold St. in Ozone Park just before 2 p.m. when she was struck.

A 43-year-old car wash attendant was pulling a gray Jeep out of the car wash bay and lost control, hitting the woman and a parked car, cops said. The woman was not the Jeep’s owner, police said.

Medics rushed the woman to Jamaica Hospital but she couldn’t be saved.

Police took the attendant into custody. Charges against him were pending while the crash investigation continued.
