A lorry hit a lamp-post and bollards before mounting a pavement and crashing into a garden wall, police said.
Nottinghamshire Police said the lorry and street furniture were damaged in Percy Street, Old Basford, Nottingham, at about 10:25 GMT on Thursday.
Officers spoke to the driver, who tested negative for alcohol or drugs, the force added.
Police said officers were "thankful" no-one was injured, as the crash happened near to a school.
The force has issued an appeal for information, and is particularly keen to hear from witnesses, or anyone who may have recorded CCTV footage, or who may have been driving along the road and captured dashcam footage.
