A three-year-old boy remains in hospital after being hit by a car in Sydney's south-west.

The child was struck by a Holden Captiva on Steward Drive in Oran Park about 5.10pm yesterday.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics before being flown to hospital in a serious condition.

A child was hit by a car on a quiet residential street in Oran Park.

His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.

The driver, a 29-year-old woman, was not injured and was taken to hospital for mandatory testing.

Police say she has been assisting with inquiries.

Officers are now appealing for anyone in the area who may have dashcam footage of the incident, or who saw what happened, to contact police.

Paramedics said it was a confronting scene.

"Going to a road accident where a child is involved is always difficult and can be extremely upsetting for the first responders on scene," Phil Sweet, duty operations manager for NSW Ambulance, said.

"In the end, we're all human and a lot of us have children as well - that's why we do our training, so we can operate well as a team, we know what we have to do to help those who need us.

"As road users we all need to take care while out and about – your life and the life of others can change in a split second."
