Now, police are thanking a Good Samaritan for saving the child.
In the video recorded last week, you see the driver pass the boy, stop, and jump out of the car just in time to prevent the boy from running into traffic.
A police officer pulled up to the scene. He chased the boy and stopped him.
The Good Samaritan, who took off after police got involved, was later found and personally thanked by police.
