The female driver of the Clio was taken to hospital with a broken wrist and a sprained ankle.
A passenger in the Scenic was also taken to hospital after he suffered a broken leg.
Now a 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to contact them on non-emergency number 101.
