The car crash that left four young adults from Queens dead over the weekend is prompting the Department of Transportation to review its signs across the city.

The accident happened late Friday night when the car hit a curb and flipped over a barrier into Steinway Creek.

The four victims were trapped inside.

The driver was able to escape.

Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg said although the department posted new signs near the site of the accident less than a year ago, they're investigating if the markings were clear enough.

"We're going to take a real systematic evaluation of all the roadways that end at creeks or end at railroad tracks and take a look at the signage and make sure we're looking around and seeing what needs to be repaired," Trottenberg said.

Trottenberg said New Yorkers should be on the lookout for dangerous road and marking conditions and should call 311 if they want to report a problem.
