The man charged in a hit-and-run, where a 4-year-old boy was killed, has been released on bail.

31-year-old Darren Dawson was released on $25,000 bail.

CP24 is reporting, he's been ordered to surrender his passport, not use a motor vehicle, and not contact the victim or his family.

Dawson was charged with leaving an accident scene causing bodily harm, driving without a licence and driving without insurance.

His Harley has been seized.

Police say the four-year-old boy who was hospitalized after a hit-and-run is in life-threatening condition.

Police spokeswoman Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook has said the hospital initially told officers that the boy died, but they were then informed by ``other sources'' that he is still alive.

Police have said that the boy was struck by a motorcycle that fled the scene Sunday afternoon in the city's east end.

Police spokeswoman Katrina Arrogante says first responders found the child in and out of consciousness before he was rushed to hospital.

She says it was reported to police that the child was with a parent at the time of the collision.

On Monday afternoon, the boy's father says he's still fighting for his life in hospital with brain injuries, a broken elbow, broken shoulder, broken legs.
