A teenager from Soham is believed to have been among those injured in a hit-and-run incident in the centre of Cambridge on Friday.
Officers had attempted to stop a blue Fiat Punto in Hills Road at 11.52pm on Thursday, but the driver sped off.
The vehicle careered off the road a short distance later, at its junction with Station Road, mounting the pavement and colliding with four teenagers.
A 17-year-old from Soham, and two other boys, also aged 17, suffered serious, but not life-threatening, leg injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital, in Cambridge, for treatment. A teenage girl was also injured.
All four were celebrating after collecting their AS Level results from Long Road Sixth Form College.
The occupants of the Punto made off from the scene on foot.
A 43-year-old man from Cambridge has been arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving and was taken to Parkside Police Station.
