A man is still in a critical condition in hospital after being hit by a car in Ascot on Sunday morning.
Police have renewed their appeal for witnesses after the incident near the Esso Garage in Ascot High Street at around 3.20am.
Officers believe the 24-year-old London man, who was hit by a blue Volkswagen Golf R32, had been involved in an altercation with another group of men in the Club One bar.
They say the row spilled on to the street and are urging witnesses to come forward.
Four men, two aged 20, one aged 22 and one aged 24, all from Slough, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and are being held in police custody.
Chief Inspector Gill Wootton, leading the investigation, said: “It is believed that the injured man was involved in an earlier altercation at the Club One club with a group of other men.
“We would urge anyone who was in the club in the early hours and may have witnessed this or who was in Ascot High Street at the time of the incident and saw the collision to please contact us.”
Deputy LPA Commander Chf Insp Lee Townsend, added: “This appears to have been an isolated incident between different groups who were not known to each other previously and who had come to Ascot on a night out.
“The altercation seems to have spilled onto the street with serious consequences for the man. Again we would urge anyone who may have information to come forward.”
Anyone with information can call Chf Insp Wootton on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
