As a result of the collision, the 32-year-old female driver of the Audi and the 22-year-old male passenger of the Transit were airlifted to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.
The 22-year-old driver of the Transit was taken by land ambulance to the Great Western Hospital.
The female driver of the Audi, who is from the Salisbury area, suffered numerous life-threatening injuries and remains in Frenchay Hospital but in what is now described as a critical but stable condition. She is no longer in a life threatening condition.
The passenger of the Transit van, who is from the Hampshire area, suffered a fractured pelvis and numerous other injuries. He remains in Frenchay in a stable condition.
The driver of the Transit van, also from Hampshire, suffered a broken right hand and minor head injuries which are not described as life threatening.
All three were out of their vehicles at the time of the collision and were stood on the hard shoulder as a result of a previous crash.
