The Mail understands the fight broke out between rival Turkish gangs outside the Plaza Pizzeria in Swinefleet Road, Old Goole.
Brendan Gutteridge lives above where the fighting happened.
He said: “I was woken up at about 4.45am and saw about 25 Turkish men, aged between 25 and 40, fighting.
“They were using all sorts of weapons and the fight must have lasted about 20 minutes.
“It seemed to end when someone drove a car and ran another man over.
“The driver tried to hit someone else but crashed into a bollard.
“At first, I thought it was down to family problems but someone said these people came from Hull and Scunthorpe.
“One group only had about four to six people and was heavily outnumbered.
“It wasn’t pleasant to see this happening outside your home.”
Other witnesses described their terror as the fight broke out in the street.
One woman, who didn’t want to be named, said: “I heard screaming and shouting from Humber Street and I just thought it was a little scrap. But when I looked, there were lots of men smashing cars.
“I was terrified.”
