Up to 20 emergency staff were sent to the scene at the junction of Tavistock Road and William Prance Road, near the Future Inn.
The driver of a Renault also involved in the collision had to be cut free in similar circumstances.
Tavistock Road heading south was closed between the Derriford roundabout and William Prance Road.
Traffic heading into the city from the north of Plymouth was diverted past Derriford roundabout and down Brest Road and onto William Prance Road.
The Renault driver, their passenger and the taxi driver were all taken to Derriford Hospital.
Three people have today been discharged from Derriford Hospital with “minor injuries”, say police.
