A blue Mazda saloon travelling south was in collision with a silver Jaguar X-type saloon travelling north.
The impact broke the Mazda in two.
The Mazda driver, a 24-year-old woman from Seaford, suffered a broken neck, with fractures to three vertebrae but no damage to her spinal cord.
She also suffered multiple cuts.
Her passenger, a 34-year-old man, was knocked unconscious and suffered suspected abdominal injuries.

His passenger, a 39-year-old man from Hurstpierpoint, also had abdominal injuries.
All four casualties were taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, for treatment.

“We would also like to thank other motorists for their patience while the road was closed."
