The collision happened at around 2.45pm at the Fiddlers, where Wood Lane, Green Lane and Whalebone Lane South meet.
One of the cars flipped onto its side, according to several witnesses.
Firefighters worked to free a person from the car.
The drivers of both vehicles have been taken to hospital, although there is no update on their condition.
This traffic collision is likely to result in heavy congestion on surrounding roads – please avoid the area if possible. Green Lane has been closed westbound (from the Fiddlers junction towards Ilford) and there is no access to Whalebone Lane from Wood Lane. https://t.co/kR4lM1JDW9
