A fourth grader from Denver, Colo., survived a horrific hit-and-run accident that was caught on video.

Eric Aguilar is seen in the video attempting to run across the street outside his house when a car hit him. The driver keeps going after the accident.

Aguilar remembers exactly what happened and was able to pinpoint exactly where he was hit and where he landed.

"It makes me sick to my stomach just to see the impact of Eric hitting the car, of him hitting the mirror," said neighbor Nicol Ocampo. "

Aguilar suffered several scrapes and bruises, but he is expected to be just fine. He said from now on, he promises to look both ways before crossing a street.

Police are still trying to track down the driver.
