Shocking footage shows the moment a still-at-large suspect plowed his car into three people — including a mother and her baby — as he fled a traffic stop in Queens on Wednesday.
The surveillance video, obtained by The Post, captured the horrifying ordeal that begins with police officers speaking with the driver of a black SUV at the intersection of Wyckoff Avenue and George Street in Ridgewood shortly after 5 p.m.
The 28-year-old mother is seen pushing her 2-year-old daughter in a stroller across the street as one of the officers motions to another cop inside of a police cruiser, when the driver floored the gas and took off, video shows.
He slammed into the mother and child, who were just feet away from where he was pulled over, and hit another 35-year-old man, not related to the woman and child.
The impact hurled the mother into a parked car while the SUV appears to have driven right over the toddler in the middle of the street as onlookers screamed, the clip shows.
The other man, who appeared to be unloading a commercial truck at the time, was knocked into the back of the truck.
The mother immediately got herself off the ground and snatched her child from the road as officers rushed to help, video shows. Some civilians ran over to help the other man.
The intersection quickly flooded with people who had run outside to see what the commotion was about. Within less than two minutes, another NYPD car arrives on the scene to assist.
The mom suffered a knee injury and her daughter fortunately only hurt her wrist, cops said. The man sustained a leg injury. All three were taken to Wyckoff Hospital.
Police said the driver had been pulled over for driving with a suspended license and had ordered him out of the vehicle.
The suspect’s car was later found in Brooklyn, but the driver is still at large.
