The boy was with his Aunt on Standishgate in Wigan at around lunchtime on the 9th November. A green Renault Megane pulled up outside Hartley's Emporium pub and a woman got out. The boy and his Aunt began to cross the road behind the car when it began reversing knocking him over.
The driver left the scene at speed despite onlookers beckoning him to stop. The 5 year old was treated in hospital for shock and soreness, but later released. The green Megane has a dent to the front offside wing mirror which was there before the collision.

An armed robber who hid his face behind a Spiderman mask terrified staff and customers at a pub in Manchester.
The robbery took place as the Gardener's Arms on Edge Lane, Droylsden, was about to close, at about 11.55pm on Tuesday night.

Bryn Hughes is hoping to complete the North Pole marathon to raise money in her memory.
A 23 year old woman was attacked as she walked with her 2 children in Rochdale on Friday evening. She was on a path between Silver Street & Spotland Road with her 5 year old daughter and 3 year old son.
– Detective Constable Russ Clarke
“Not only did this victim sustain fractures to her eye, cheekbone & other facial & body injuries, but her young children had to watch the violent and unprovoked attack take place. I ask that anyone who knows the identity of the attackers or who has information as to what happened to contact the police as soon as possible. These women clearly thought nothing of attacking this woman in front of her children, who are now having to deal with the consequences.
She was pushed to the ground, punched & kicked by 4 women. They only stopped when one of the children shouted for the attackers to leave her mum alone.
The victim was watching TV in her living room when her masked attacker broke in through a window, ripped her careline pendant from her neck and began shaking her demanding cash. He stole her purse containing a small amount of cash and fled from the house on Springfield Road, Kearsley.
– Detective Sergeant Lee Shaw, Greater Manchester Police
"To break into the home of a 92-year-old woman is bad enough, but to then physically attack this woman - who is clearly vulnerable and has no capacity to defend herself - is reprehensible and the actions of a desperate coward.
"He has subjected this woman and her family to a completely unnecessary and frightening ordeal for the sake of just a few pounds.
"I want anyone who was in the area at the time and who may have seen something to come forward.
There are claims that parts for what would be the first-ever gun produced in Britain by 3D printing, may have been seized by police in Manchester.
They were recovered during a week long operation against organised crime.
Detectives have sent the items for testing, but the owner of the shop where they were found strongly denies they were for a firearm, saying they were in fact parts from the printer itself.
