The accident happened around 4:30 p.m. along Germantown Avenue near Seymour.
Surveillance video of the accident shows woman and child starting to cross the street as a newer model Dodge Nitro SUV makes a turn down the street.
The woman stops but the child keeps walking right into the vehicle, which knocks him back onto the ground.
The driver of the car allegedly got out, looked at the child, then got back into the car and drove off.
The boy was not critically injured. He was taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center for treatment.
