Two boys have been taken to Ninewells Hospital after being knocked down by a van near Invergowrie Primary School.
The pair, who have both been described by police as being approximately eight years old, are not believed to have sustained serious injuries.
Officers were called to the scene on Errol Road at around 12.10pm on Friday afternoon and two ambulance crews also attended.
A spokeswoman for Police Scotland said: “The two boys were taken to Ninewells Hospital but at this stage it looks to be very minor.
“Both have been said to be approximately eight years old but we don’t have that confirmed at the moment.”
A spokesperson for the Scottish Ambulance Service said: “We received a call at 12.10pm today to attend an incident on Errol Road in Invergowrie.
“We dispatched two ambulances to the scene.”
Carse of Gowrie councillor Angus Forbes said he was “very concerned” to hear about the accident but was relieved no life threatening injuries appear to be involved.
He said: “My thoughts are with the families of the children. It must be terrible to have to deal with this, especially at Christmas time.
“Invergowrie has been in the news recently with the planning application over the Swallow Roundabout. As this accident took place on Errol road, I am not convinced its connected to the rat running issue that has been the subject of discussion following that planning decision.
“I will, however, make Perth and Kinross Council traffic safety team aware of it and have further discussions with them after the break.”
