Preliminary investigation showed that a Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by a 63-year-old Dorchester man collided with a Jeep Wrangler driven by a 19-year-old Dedham man, according to state police.

A 63-year-old Dorchester woman who was a passenger in the pickup truck was also uninjured.

Building inspectors for the City of Boston also responded to the scene to evaluate the damage to the house.
