"For a split second, my heart stopped when he told me he was hit by a car," said Brahm's mother, Jennifer Woodrow.

"And then, very quickly, I thought, well, I'm talking to him so it can't be that bad."

The incident was captured on dashcam video, but the licence plate on the vehicle was not visible.

But his mother is furious and has a message for whoever was behind the wheel of the car.

"Come forward, acknowledge what you've done," she said. "I don't know if they were distracted or something, but it's just an irresponsible person that doesn't stop."
