Rescue crews on scene of a tragic accident in Queens.
Officials say four passengers were killed after their car plunged into a waterway that flows into New York City's East River late Friday night.
Rescue divers pulled two men and two women from the vehicle submerged in Steinway Creek.
The fifth occupant managed to escape with minor injuries. A breathalyzer test found him sober.
All four victims - between the ages of 19 and 21 - lived in a middle-class neighborhood in Queens.
Police say they're still investigating, but suspect the car hit a curb in a dead-end street around 10:30pm, before rolling into the creek.
