Heart-stopping dashcam footage showing the moment a little boy on a scooter ploughs into the side of a moving car has split opinion over who is to blame for the horror smash.

The child is seen crossing the road with a woman, believed to be his mother, and rides into the rear door of an oncoming car doing 30mph. Incredibly the child escapes uninjured after the vehicle swerves to a stop and the mum picks him up off the road.

Audiences online are divided, with some slamming the mother for not holding her son’s hand and others suggesting it was the Audi estate driver’s responsibility to stop. What do you think?
