Police said they arrested one of two victims in an early morning hit and run accident in Astoria that appeared to be intentional.

Felix Reges, 20, of Corona, was arrested Friday and charged with criminal possession of narcotics after being hit by a gray SUV during a dispute outside of 32-26 Steinway St. in Astoria, police said.

Police said Reges was one of five men involved in an early morning dispute on Steinway Street. Three of the men got into a parked gray SUV after the dispute and allegedly attempted to hit the other two men with the vehicle. After striking one of the men, the vehicle reversed and struck the other man, police said.

Police said the occupants of the vehicle are still being sought and that the two victims were transported to Elmhurst Hospital, where one of them was in critical condition and the other was in stable condition.
