The 10-year-old boy is currently receiving treatment for serious injuries after being hit crossing the road in Moston yesterday evening.
The accident happened on Moston Lane at around 6.35pm.
He had crossed the first lane of traffic on his push scooter but was involved in a collision with a black BMW 1 Series as he reached the second lane.
While he remains in a serious condition, his injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
The driver of the BMW stopped at the scene and no arrests have been made.
Officers are appealing for those with information and dashcam footage of the collision – that happened outside California Wines – to come forward.
It is believed that a light coloured Fiat Punto, driving in the opposite direction, had its wing mirror knocked off during the collision.
Police believe there was also a blue Audi A1 behind the Fiat Punto that would have witnessed the incident.
