A blue Ford C-Max collided with three women and a man in Cambrian Road at about 5.30am.
Gwent Police said that two women involved in the crash received “potentially life changing injuries”.
Following the incident, the driver, described as a black man aged between 20 and 30, made off in the direction of Maindee.
The vehicle was later found burnt out on Magor Street, Newport.
