ASTORIA — Authorities said four men were injured early Sunday when a car careened through a brawl outside an Astoria nightclub, the New York Post reported.
Cops said several men jumped a 23-year-old man and slashed his back at Amnesia, on Steinway Street, just after 4 a.m., according to the newspaper.
Clubgoers fled as the assailants ran out of the club, police said, and one of the alleged attackers, 18-year-old Orlando Santos, had his hip dislocated when a car — not believed to be connected with the fight — struck him, the Post said.
The car also hit a 25-year-old clubgoer and ran over a 28-year-old male patron, whose face was then slashed in more fighting, said the Post.
The driver fled and all the men were in stable condition at New York Hospital, according to the newspaper.
Police arrested Santos at the hospital and apprehended a suspected accomplice, 20-year-old Steven Martinez, the newspaper reported.
