A 5-year-old boy was killed in a hit-and run-crash in Queens on Thursday, police said.

He was crossing 100th St. at McIntosh St. in East Elmhurst around 5:30 p.m. as his father held his hand, according to cops and sources. A 10-year-old boy was also present.

A white Dodge Ram pickup truck turning left onto McIntosh St. struck the 5-year-old and kept going, horrifying video viewed by the Daily News shows.

The small victim suffered severe head and torso injuries.

Medics arrived and immediately started CPR, a witness said.

“The baby was on the floor with blood all over his face,” said Ayaan Ahmed. “I got up close and he was unconscious. The people around him, his parents, were crying.”

He was rushed him to Elmhurst Hospital, but he could not be saved.

“I feel bad,” said Ahmed. “He was just a little kid.”

The driver is a local resident, sources said. Police are working to get him to turn himself in.

The boy also lived in the neighborhood, sources said.
