FLUSHING, Queens (WABC) -- A child is in critical condition after being struck by a dirt bike in Queens.

The 4-year-old boy was inside a parking lot at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Boathouse when he was struck just before 6 p.m. Sunday.

The child suffered severe head trauma and was transported to the hospital where he is in critical condition.

The dirt bike fled the scene.

"Dirt bikes going back and forth -- there was so much going on, we didn't realize somebody got hit until the ambulance came. Kind of messed up, especially for a child to get hit," said Harold Hadalgo.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
