The boy ran out from behind a parked car into the street and directly into the path of the pickup.

The truck, which had a flatbed trailer in tow, was going at a healthy clip and the driver didn’t get out after the accident, according to family members who saw the incident.

"Why? Porque? Why?" asked grandfather Oscar Andrade. "He could have stopped, helped. Don't do this."

Cantu suffered a concussion and a broken leg, according to kens5.com.

He’s expected to make a full recovery.
