NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The driver accused of hitting an 11-year-old boy on a bike before taking off has been arrested.

Authorities said they arrested Agostinho Sinclair, 41, after his four dour sedan was discovered with a broken windshield just blocked away from the collision in Far Rockaway.

Video shows the vehicle hitting 11-year-old Richard Glanville on Dickens Street at around 7:40 p.m. Monday.

Glanville can be seen hitting the windshield of the car before being sent flying through the air as the car drives off.

Police said the boy suffered serious internal injuries and was taken to Long Island Jewish Cohen Children’s Hospital where he is recovering.

Sinclair now faces multiple charges, including reckless endangerment and leaving the scene of an accident.
