The dark red Ford bumped into the cyclist on Poplar High Street shortly before 7 pm last night.
The driver then ran away and the police could not track them so far.
The teenage cyclist remained trapped behind the car, which crashed into a bollard and allowed smoke to rise from the crumpled hood.
Images filmed by a passerby show screams and screams while the locals realize what happened and rush to help.
A group of about 15 people then lift the one-and-a-half-ton car while others take the teenager out.
The cyclist was then rushed to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.
The police have called for witnesses and anyone with dashcam recordings of the run-up to the crash or incident itself to be brought forward.
