A 43-old-man, his 4-year-old son, his 8-year-old daughter and two other kids ages 9 and 10 were struck by the 2014 black Toyota Camry at Boca Raton and Boynton Beach in Palm Beach County.

His 4-year old-son, writhing with a broken leg, looked on as rescuers pulled his mom and sister from beneath the car.

“I held his hand and he said, ‘I want to see my sister, I want to see my sister!’ said a 47-year-old passer-by. “He was so scared. I said, ‘Look at me! You’re going to be OK.’”

The 35-year-old cab, who held a Taxi and Limousine Commission license, told cops he lost control before jumping the curb and striking the victims.

Surveillance video shows the sidewalk full of school-aged kids as the car heads for them.

His 10-year-old son and his daughter suffered chest trauma as well as broken legs, FHP sources said. His daughter also suffered a broken pelvis and internal bleeding.

The dad, who suffered a head injury, and the injured children were all taken to Delray Medical Center.

The two other children suffered minor injuries, authorities said. The 10-year-old boy was taken to Delray Medical Center with head trauma, while the 9-year-old girl was treated at Palm Beach hospital for a minor ear abrasion, FHP officials said.

The driver remained at the scene and was questioned by cops, but no criminality was suspected.
