A Scottish Ambulance Service spokesperson confirmed: “We received a call at 7.44pm on Monday, April 8, to attend a road traffic collision on Rose Crescent in Perth.
“We dispatched a paramedic response unit to the scene.”
It is understood that a man suffered a head injury in the crash, however paramedics confirmed that he was treated at the site and did not travel to hospital.
An eyewitness said: “I was driving home from work and I couldn’t get into Rose Crescent.
“A dark coloured Mazda MX-5 was strewn across the road and a bus was blocking it in.
“The car must have been written off there and then as it had suffered heavy damage to its front.
“It was blocking the junction diagonally and there was debris from the car all across the road.
“The emergency services hadn’t arrived so the road wasn’t closed off yet and it looked like there was about ten people or so still on the bus.”
Stagecoach had to divert their services via Riggs road following the crash.
