The 58-year-old driver of the Volkswagen Tiguan was taken by ambulance to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow where he is being treated for head injuries.
Hospital staff describe his condition as critical.
The 28-year-old driver of the Mini was taken by ambulance to Monklands District General Hospital where he was treated for injuries to his upper body, he has since been released.
Sergeant Scott Sutherland said: "Extensive enquiries are continuing into the cause of the crash and I would urge any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police to come forward.
"I would also appeal to other motorists who were travelling on this carriageway shortly before the road crash took place to contact us, particularly if they have any dash cam footage, as these motorists may hold information that is significant to this investigation."
