The freak accident happened on Saturday tea time when the boy allegedly ran to cross the road and was struck by a yellow Peugeot at the junction of Longwood Road.
West Yorkshire Police Force Duty Inspector Carlton Young said: “It appears a young child has run out between two cars and been involved in a collision and was taken to Leeds General Infirmary.
“The driver of the car was not injured and has not been arrested.”
Police confirmed a number of witnesses saw the collision and the driver was not at fault.
The boy was taken to Leeds General Infirmary by ambulance, having suffered a broken ankle.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
West Yorkshire Police Road Traffic Collision Investigators were called to scene and cordoned off the road to allow emergency services to treat the child.
