An NYPD officer was injured in Queens on Tuesday night when a suspected car thief hit him with a stolen vehicle as he tried to flee, authorities said.

Sean Kelly, 43, allegedly sped into a black Honda Accord which police say was stolen after he was spotted painting the vehicle near Guy R Brewer Boulevard and 109th Avenue just after 7 p.m., according to the NYPD.

As Kelly walked away, he allegedly cut a police officer in the leg.

Cops caught up with Kelly and an accomplice, who was sitting in the passenger seat of the Honda during the incident, moments later and arrested the couple without further incident.

The cop was treated for his leg injury at Jamaica Medical Center and released.

Kelly, of Long Island, was charged with robbery, possession of stolen property, obstructing government administration, resisting arrest and unauthorized use of the vehicle.

His alleged accomplice, Nicole Chang, 38, of Queens, was arrested on the same charges, police said.
