The 53-year-old man was behind the wheel of the $ 80,000 Audi SUV Q5 when he mowed the family as they crossed the road outside a primary school in Sydney.
The student of the Neutral Bay Public School was taken to the hospital in a critical condition, while his father suffered a serious back injury.
Daily Mail Austalia understands that he remains in critical condition.
The driver, from Cremorne Point, was seen in tears after the accident. Reportedly, he had just dropped off children himself.

Backpacks believed to belong to the two children involved were left on the floor outside the school after the injured and a shocked fellow student, 8, were taken to the hospital
The driver was taken out of the car by bystanders and taken to the Royal North Shore Hospital for treatment and routine testing.
It was chaos just before the school bell rang with parents yelling that children in the area should be taken away.
A witness said he saw the boy's desperate mother run up the road as he shouted & it is my son & # 39 ;.
The boy's cousin, 8, also witnessed the incident and was taken to the hospital in shock.
Elder Agnes Quinn, whose daughter is primary in Neutral Bay in the first year, said she arrived at school just as the commotion unfolded.
& # 39; I left my daughter in front of the office, suddenly teachers walked in and the shock on their face, you could see it was pretty bad, & # 39; said Mrs. Quinn.
& # 39; The director and the teachers ran outside and took out a first aid box and defibrilator and pillows and brought him out on the street. Everyone was running around. & # 39;
& # 39; Two mothers came and cried and had to sit down because they were so shocked. & # 39;
