A car crashed into the East River just blocks away from a fatal accident where four people lost their lives Friday night, police said.

The vehicle was traveling on 20th Avenue and Shore Boulevard in Astoria about 4 a.m. Saturday when it went through a fence and entered the water, according to the NYPD.

When cops arrived, the vehicle’s four passengers were out of the river and told police  that the driver fled the scene. They were then taken to Mount Sinai Queens where they were treated and released, officials said.
