Surveillance video caught the shocking moment when a motorist deliberately drove his car on to Manhattan sidewalk and crashes into a father and his 8-year-old son.

The father and son who also were pushed into a gate by the impact were rushed to a hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries, cops said.
