Car hits a boy in Manchester - level 3
This is the shocking moment a hit and run motorist drove into an 11-year-old boy before making a getaway.
Footage released by Greater Manchester Police shows the driver of a turquoise Honda Civic swerve into the child, knocking him to the ground before driving away.
The incident, which could have been fatal, happened in Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester last week.
Police are desperately trying to identify the driver, who they say shows a worrying level of apathy and regard for the young boy, who the driver left slumped in the road.
The schoolboy was taken to a nearby hospital and remarkably only suffered minor injuries.
He missed just one day of school.
