A man faces drink-driving and hit and run charges after four pedestrians were injured crossing a Sydney road.

Police allege the 23-year-old drove through a red light, hit the group, stopped to help and then drove away before returning to the scene.

The two men and two women were crossing at the intersection of Marsden and Argyle streets at Parramatta when struck shortly before 9pm on Monday.

Two men, aged 21 and 23, and a 22-year-old woman got out of the Ford Focus to assist the injured people but the two men got back in the car and drove away, police say.

All three were arrested when the pair returned to the scene.

The pedestrians were taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver allegedly returned a positive breath test and will appear before Parramatta Local Court on February 10.

The younger man and woman were released pending further inquiries, police said.
