A DUMP truck was left looking a bit worse for wear after colliding with a sedan and then knocking down a timber fence in a quiet suburban street yesterday.

The two-vehicle smash was reported at the corner of Challinor and Cribb Sts about 8.30am.

The female driver of the sedan was taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Meanwhile, the dump truck driver, who was not injured, was talking to police after the collision.
