A short while after 3am this morning, police officers were called to Dodwells Road in Hinckley alongside the fire service and ambulance service after they received a report of a blue Honda car colliding into a lamppost.
Three occupants were involved in the incident – two women and a man, all of which were all taken to the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire on Clifford Bridge Road in Coventry.
A 17-year-old woman who was involved is being treated for life-threatening injuries.
The two other occupants, an 18-year-old woman and 29-year-old man, are being treated for injuries, but theirs are not life-threatening.
An 18-year-old woman has been arrested on the suspicion of drink-driving.
The road has since re-opened to members of the public at the time of publication, officers have confirmed.
