A wayward van rammed into a Flatlands veterinary clinic following a car accident on Kings Highway last week, pinning a hapless victim against a wall, officials said.

Witnesses claim that the van and another vehicle collided near Utica Avenue at 12:30 pm on Sept. 12, sending the vehicle careening through the front window of the Veterinary Medical Center Animal Hospital and pinning a pedestrian against the wall in the process, an FDNY spokesman said.

Three other people suffered minor injuries, the spokesman added.

Investigators were still trying to figure out who was responsible for the initial car crash by Friday evening.
