The Ford Fiesta careered off the road near the village’s golf club and hit some trees.

The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) were alerted to the B158 at midday to treat the man, 19, and woman, 20.

An ambulance, an area manager and the Essex Air Ambulance attended the scene.

EEAST spokesman Gary Sanderson, who attended the collision said: “Both casualties were very lucky not to have sustained serious injuries as the car was down a steep embankment against a tree on our arrival.”

Following treatment by land and air ambulance crews, they were taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital, in Harlow, for further care.

Their injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
