A massive police cordon stretched round the site of the incident in Wollaton Vale yesterday morning.
Tape closed off Grangewood Road and a large section of Nidderdale, where a car and 4x4, both with smashed windows, had been left in the middle of the street.
A man living nearby, who asked to be named only as Liam, said he heard a crash at about 12.45am and saw two cars in the road.
He said: "Then I saw some young men run off towards the Vale, there was a bit of shouting as they were running off.
"Then there were a couple of lads there after when the police showed up, one of them was injured and he showed the police – there was blood on him.
"It seemed like two different groups were involved."
Police are investigating and confirmed a fight began between people who were involved in the crash. The force said a 21-year-old man was taken to Nottingham City Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Another man, who lives in nearby Nidderdale Close, and who asked not to be named, said: "I heard a big bang at about 1.30am. It just didn't seem right. It sounded like a crash and then I saw a car racing up and down the road, and I heard a bit of shouting.
"It's normally quiet round here, there are a lot of elderly people and there's never normally any trouble."
A woman living further down the street, who also asked not to be named, said: "We're not used to this. I've been here for 17 years and never seen anything like it."
A police spokesman said: "An 18-year-old Nottingham man has been arrested on suspicion of affray and is being questioned by officers."
