Two people were injured during the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run after one of the classic cars participating was involved in a crash with three other vehicles.

The event is organised by the Royal Automobile Club and sees a procession of vintage cars make its way from the capital to the coast. Claimed to be the world’s oldest motoring event, it celebrates the Emancipation Run of 1896, the introduction of the Locomotives on the Highway Act which saw both the speed limit raised to 14 mph from mph and the need for a man walking in front of the car waving a flag abolished.

The vintage car involved in the shunt at Reigate Hill, Surrey was a 1902 Benz. Two of the car’s four passengers were taken to hospital with serious injuries. The other occupants injuries were minor.

The other vehicles involved in the crash were a silver Ford C-Max, a Mercedes-Benz GLE and a Fiat. Two passengers from the Ford were also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
