Seven people in the cars were injured, with five being taken to hospital. Three of the car occupants were taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital (one via helicopter) in a serious but stable condition. Two other people were taken to a local hospital, while two people were treated at the scene for minor injuries. The truck driver was not injured.
