One person was injured in the multi-vehicle collision on Constitution Road.
It is understood six vehicles were involved in the accident, which occurred on one of the steepest streets in Dundee.
Emergency services were called to the scene just before 9am.
One of the cars skidded off the road and then fell into the space between the pavement and block of flats, striking the window frame of the basement flat.

There were major delays on all the main roads into Dundee this morning because of the heavy snowfall while there were a series of minor collisions around the city.
Many bus services were also cancelled.
Traffic heading onto the Tay Road Bridge was backed up as far as the Forgan roundabout.
Remarkably, the Constitution Road incident was not the only six-vehicle collision to occur this morning.
Six vehicles were involved in a collision on the A92 from Glenrothes to Kirkcaldy.
Although there were no serious injuries, the road between the Preston and Bankhead roundabouts was closed for two hours.
