Both men, aged 20 and 21and from the local area, were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and aggravated taking a vehicle without the owners consent.
They have since been released on police bail pending further enquiries.
Officers continue to investigate the incident and would like anyone with information, or any witnesses of the collision who they haven’t spoken to already to contact them.
They are particularly interested in speaking to a woman in her 20s who, along with another man, assisted one of the injured occupants after the collision. She had brown shoulder length hair and was wearing pyjamas.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
