One, who lives on Seaforth Road, said she heard a “loud bang” before a dark grey car collided with a neighbour’s garden wall.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said there were no serious injuries during the incident on Monday morning although tyre tracks were left at the scene.
Resident Dr Donald McWhannell, 78, said a 12-foot section of his wall was damaged.
He said: “We’ve lived here for 25 years and nothing like this has happened before.
“I’m amazed we never heard anything.
“The police came to the door and told us what had happened.
“I came out and had a look at the wall and it was quite a big hole.
“The car was being uploaded on to a pick-up truck when I came out. The front of it looked badly damaged.”
It is understood the vehicle which collided with the wall was being driven towards Arbroath.
Dr McWhannell added: “I’m happy to hear no one was seriously injured. The person is extremely lucky they never hit the lamp-post close by.
“I do know there was another vehicle involved.
“I didn’t see how badly damaged it was.
“You can still see some debris from the car lying in and around my garden wall.”
Another resident, who was on the way to a nearby bus stop, said: “I saw a couple of police officers at the scene.
“The traffic was backed up quite badly along Arbroath Road.
“I couldn’t tell the make of the cars but they both looked badly damaged.”
A police spokesman said: “Police Scotland attended a road traffic collision on Arbroath Road, between Scott Fyffe roundabout and Claypotts, around 9.20am on Monday.
“Two cars were involved in the collision which blocked the road for a short time.
“There were no serious injuries, and one of the drivers was issued a conditional offer fixed penalty notice for careless driving.”
