A shocked north-east homeowner today told of his whole house shaking as a car ploughed into the side of it.
It is understood the car left the residential street at a bend before smashing through a fence and into a garden shed and the side of the property.
Emergency services including the police and fire crews were called to the scene but said no one had been injured.
A man, who owns the property but did not want to be named, was home at the time of the incident, which happened shortly after 3pm yesterday at Burnside Road in Mintlaw.
He told the Evening Express he was shocked to find the vehicle in his garden after hearing and feeling the impact.
He said: “I was just upstairs and heard a very loud bang.
“I originally thought something had exploded. The whole house shook.
“My first instinct was to run downstairs and see what happened.
“I looked out the kitchen window to see the car outside the house.
“I ran outside to check to see if the driver was okay and they were so I phoned the police, who arrived within five minutes.
“I’m glad no one was hurt.”
Part of a shed and the side of the house were damaged, as well as fencing surrounding the property.
The contents of the shed were also affected, including a bike.
Debris including wood from the house and hut were scattered in the garden.
A police spokeswoman said there was no major structural damage caused.
She said they received a call at 3.12pm following “a one- vehicle road traffic collision” involving a house on Burnside Road.
“There were no injuries,” she added. “We arranged recovery for the vehicle.
“There was no structural damage to the property.”
Three fire crews were in attendance at the scene from Maud and Peterhead stations.
A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “We attended as a precaution, sending three appliances after receiving calls from police regarding a one-vehicle incident.
“We made the scene safe and left before 4pm.”
