A woman and three men were injured in a Boxing Day police chase in Dagenham.
At around 9.30pm, officers signalled for a car on the junction of Oxlow Lane and Wood Lane to stop.
It failed to do so, and a chase ensued.
The car crashed into another vehicle in Wood Lane, and the suspects tried to escape on foot. They were stopped and arrested before they could get away.
A man and woman in the oncoming vehicle were injured, as were the two male suspects, believed to be in their 30s.
The London Ambulance Service arrived and all four were taken to a hospital, where their injuries were deemed neither life threatening nor life changing.
The two men were discharged from hospital and arrested on suspicion of aggravated theft of a car, dangerous driving, driving with no insurance, driving while disqualified and being equipped to steal.
They remain in custody at a police station in east London.
