Emergency services were called out after a van and a car crashed into the side of a building during rush-hour traffic.
The van – thought to belong to a tradesman – is believed to have hit a parked car and both vehicles went into the side of the building at the junction of Rose Crescent and Taymount Terrace, in the Jeanfield area of Perth, north of the city centre, around 7.30am on Monday.
Up to 10 firefighters and officers from Police Scotland attended the collision.
It is understood the driver of the van escaped injury and that the property was not significantly damaged.
Emergency service crews remained at the scene for nearly half an hour following the initial report.
A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed officers had attended the scene.
“We were called after a report that a vehicle had gone into a property,” he said.
“We received the report shortly after 7.25am.
“At the scene, it was established there were no injuries sustained and there was no significant damage to the building.”
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed it had been called to attend the scene amid concern for the safety of those involved – and also to make sure the house involved was not damaged.
A spokeswoman for the service said it had received a report from a member of the public shortly after 7.20am.
She added: “We received a call from a member of the public reporting that a van and a car had crashed into the side of a property.
“Two units from Perth Fire Station attended the scene after a van and a car came to rest against the side of a property. They made the scene safe and stood down at 7.50am.”
It is understood that the property was empty at the time.
A neighbour said: “Just after 7am there was the most enormous bang. I was really worried that two cars had crashed outside.
“When my husband looked outside he saw that a van had ploughed straight through the garden wall and into the house.’’
