Shocking dash-cam footage emerged Thursday showing a child running into a Brooklyn street and getting slammed by a car — just blocks from where a woman was fatally hit by a cement truck this week.
The boy tried to sprint across 55th Street between 14th Avenue and New Utrecht Avenue in Borough Park — just as a car approached Wednesday around 8 a.m., according to the video posted on Twitter.
The child was sent flying into the air on impact, as the vehicle screeched to a halt.
He landed a couple of feet ahead of the car, with the contents of his backpack strewn across the cement, and then shot right back up and walked away, video shows.
