The driver stopped briefly before continuing. A silver car behind the red car also stopped for a short time.
Police want to speak to people in either of the vehicles.
The boy was said to be shaken by the incident and received treatment for cuts and bruises.
Police spokesman Chris Jackson said people in the vehicles should have stopped.
He said: "It is very important that if you are in collision with someone you stop your car and call police, no matter how minor the injuries may appear.
"This is even more vital when a child is involved who may not fully realise what has happened or how badly hurt they are.
"This case has been upsetting for both the boy and his parents and we would urge these motorists to call us straight away."
Anyone with information should contact police on 101, quoting incident 254 of September 15.
