ELMHURST, Queens (PIX11) — Troubling new video shows the moment that a hit-and-run driver fatally struck a 5-year-old boy crossing an Elmhurst street with his parents.

PIX11 News obtained the video of the Thursday evening incident from sources and has edited it to stop before young Jonathan Martinez was struck. The footage shows a white Dodge Ram truck turning from McIntosh Street onto 100th Street around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, and striking Martinez as he crossed the intersection with his parents.

Still, the driver did not stop. Police continued to search for him Friday afternoon.

First responders rushed Martinez to an area hospital. He succumbed to severe trauma to his head and torso, authorities said.

Richard Martinez, the father of Jonathan, said he was holding his children’s hands as they walked back home after spending time playing in a nearby park when the crash happened. Richard said he tried running after the driver but was unsuccessful.

Richard said his heart is broken without his son, who was a good boy. He said Jonathan was excited about starting school, loved going to church and was always smiling.

The community gathered together to mourn the death of Jonathan at a vigil Friday night.

A GoFundMe page started for the family has raised more than $20,000.

Anyone with information about the driver was asked to contact the NYPD.
