VANCOUVER - Police say seven people were injured in an early morning head-on collision in Vancouver's east end.

The incident occurred before 6 a.m. Friday on Grandview Highway near Penticton Street.

Police say a Ford Focus and Mercedes SUV collided over the centre line of the four-lane highway.

Police say the 20-year-old male driver of the car and a 19-year-old female passenger were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police say a third occupant of the vehicle suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries.

The four passengers of the Mercedes, whose ages range from 48 to 70, suffered relatively minor injuries but were also taken to hospital.

A portion of Grandview Highway remained closed for much of the day as police investigated the cause of the crash.
