Emergency crews were called to a city retail park after a car ploughed into a shop window yesterday.
Two people were reported to have been injured in the incident at the Next store at Gallagher Retail Park.
A white Volkswagen Polo GT is understood to have hit metal bollards before crashing into the store.
An eyewitness said the driver of the car had been parked in a bay outside the shop at around 9.30am before the crash happened.
One pedestrian was injured as she attempted to get out of the way of the oncoming vehicle.
Staff from Next contacted the emergency services following the incident.
Three police vehicles, two fire engines and two ambulance crews arrived at the scene shortly after.
Allie Davidson, 22, a customer service adviser at Mothercare, said staff could smell “burning rubber” after the crash.
She said: “I’m amazed we never heard the glass smashing.
“I saw two police cars at the scene and two ambulance crews.
“We could smell the burning rubber from the shop.
“When I saw the damage, I was concerned that pedestrians might have been walking past when it happened.”
Shopper Errim Sleemy, 41, from Broughty Ferry, described the scene following the incident.
She said: “I’d just come down to do some shopping.
“I saw the white car had smashed into the glass.
“There were fire crews there and police and ambulances.
“It was quite shocking to see the damage and all the emergency crews at the scene.”
Another man also witnessed the car colliding with the window. He added: “The car had been parked in one of the bays outside the store.
“One woman had to get out of the way of the oncoming car – fortunately no one appears to have been badly injured.”
A Scottish Ambulance spokesperson said: “We received a call at 09.36 hours today to attend an incident at Gallagaher Retail Park in Dundee.
“We dispatched two ambulances and a manager to the scene. Three patients – two females and a male all in their 70s – were transported to Ninewells Hospital.”
The injuries are not thought to be serious.
A spokeswoman for Scottish Fire and Rescue said a crew from Kingsway East fire station and one from Blackness Road fire station were dispatched at around 9.50am.
She said: “The crews had to use hydraulic cutting equipment to make the vehicle safe before leaving the scene at 10.55am.”
A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed officers had attended the retail park in response to reports of a car having struck a shop window.
He said: “A white VW Polo had collided with the shop front, breaking the window.
“Two people were treated for minor injuries at the scene, and the car has now been removed.
“Inquiries into the exact cause of the incident are ongoing. However, officers are satisfied that this was not a deliberate act.”
