While friends and family moved Angus off the road, the female driver was initially present at the scene.

Police and witnesses say she returned to her car moments later and drove off down Yarra Street.

Angus was taken to the Royal Children's Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The 51-year-old has been released and is expected to be charged on summons with failing to render assistance after a serious injury, failing to remain at the scene of an accident, and failing to report a collision to police.

Police have seized the woman's car, which will be forensically examined.
