The Metropolitan Police said five men aged between 23 and 42 were injured when a car hit a number of pedestrians on Stockwell Road near the junction of Sidney Road, in south-west London, just before 3am.
None of the injured are in a critical condition.
Officers believe the collision occurred shortly after an “altercation” between the occupants of the vehicle and a number of pedestrians.
The car, a VW Golf, was abandoned at the scene and a number of occupants made off on foot, the Met said.
