Officers have now confirmed that a second 18-year-old man, who has not yet been named, has died as a result of his injuries.
He had been taken to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and was also a passenger in the Ford Fiesta.
A third male - the driver - was taken to hospital for treatment but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
The female driver of the Vauxhall Corsa, a 19-year-old woman, was uninjured.
Police would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision.
Anyone with any information should call the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101, quoting CAD number 332 of December 26.
