I can't recall a movie I watched when I was a kid, possibly 1970's

All I can remember is that (I think) there was a kid on a bike, and he either was hit, or pretended like he was hit by a car. May have been convertible? A dark haired man was driving and offered to take him and the bike home. One of them took a photo with a Polaroid camera, because I had thought it was a Polaroid commercial lol.

There was a woman.. might have been with the kid or in the car???

Next scene I think I remember is the woman is standing in the kitchen at a house, and the man comes in. I think she wrote "help" in the dirt of a flower pot, and then we see a car submerged in a creek? Its like the kids had taken her hostage to have a mother I guess.. I was young at the time, so I might be missing the point lol.

I'm not 100% sure if it was ever a theater movie, but my mom and I watched it on TV.

Any ideas?

Thank you!
