Five people were injured, two of them seriously, in a two-vehicle crash east of Woodstock.

A pickup truck travelling west of Highway 2, near Highway 53 in Norwich Township, crossed the line and collided with an eastbound SUV about 12:20 p.m. on Sunday, Oxford OPP said.

The pickup flipped onto its side, police said.

The male drivers of both vehicles were taken to hospital where they remain in critical condition, police said Monday. A woman and two children, ages 9 and 11, from the SUV were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
