SEVEN people were taken to hospital after two cars crashed head on in to each other.
At 3.20am last Sunday, a Ford Fiesta smashed into a Toyota Landcruiser with such force that the Fiesta's engine was flung 40ft in to nearby woods.
Police, fire, ambulance and air ambulance all attended the incident and the Landcruiser was hosed down to prevent it catching fire.
The four occupants of the Landcruiser were taken to the Princess Royal University Hospital, Farnborough.
The driver, 36, suffered a broken leg and chest injuries while a front passenger, 35, fractured his back and injured his neck.
A 43-year-old back seat passenger suffered minor chest injuries and a 22-year-old man may have a fractured back.
The driver of the Fiesta was taken to Kings College Hospital with a fractured rib and broken collarbone.
His two passengers, a man and a woman had minor cuts and bruises. A recovery vehicle had to drag the engine of the Fiesta from the woods with chains.
Croydon Road and Five Elms Road were closed until 10.15am and there have been no arrests at the time of going to press.
