The passenger and driver of the Mercedes were taken to hospital with serious injuries. The woman driver, in her 70s, was taken to hospital with a broken collar bone, broken left wrist, fractured ribs and internal injuries. The passenger, a man also in his 70s, had fractured ribs and chest injuries.
