A woman, in her 30s, who was driving the Fiesta and a 17-year-old boy, who was also a passenger in the car, were taken to a London hospital with serious injuries and remain in a stable condition.
A third man, aged 21, and also travelling in the Fiesta, was taken to a local hospital along with a 46-year-old woman who was driving the Discovery.
