Terrifying dash cam footage has captured the horrific moment a child riding a scooter was hit by a car in South Australia.
The video was posted on the Aussie Cams Youtube channel on Tuesday, and shows a black SUV approaching a roundabout at Munno Para in Adelaide‘s northern suburbs after 3pm on December 1.
The SUV begins to make a left turn at the roundabout, just as a child riding a scooter appears on the left hand side of the road.

As the driver exits the roundabout, the child starts pushing across the road on the scooter before they collide with a sickening impact.
‘Oh! Did that kid just get hit?’ a passenger in the recording car says in the video.
The video is captioned with a warning for motorists to keep their eyes out for children on the road in the upcoming holiday period.
‘Watch out kids about these school holidays,’ the caption reads.
