The crash happened in the 7500 block of Tropicana Avenue Sunday morning. Surveillance video from the house released by police Monday shows the boy riding out of his driveway when the van blows past, smashing him without a hint of stopping. Police found the van Monday morning.

The child was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to police.
