A section of the road is closed near Spey Drive.
It’s understood the child was struck by the van.
One witness said: “I just saw a figure on the ground underneath the wheels.
“I wasn’t sure if they had collapsed or if they had been hit. It didn’t look like they were moving.
“There quite a big presence in terms of emergency services.”
A spokesman said: “Police Scotland have attended at a road traffic collision in Charleston Drive, Dundee, about 3:35pm today involving a van and a pedestrian.
“An 11-year-old boy has been taken to Ninewells Hospital with leg injuries. Enquiries are continuing into the incident.”
