The Long Branch Police pulled a car from the banks of Lake Takanassee after the vehicle apparently backed into it on Friday morning.
The vehicle's occupants were removed and were not hurt and the blue sedan did not appear to be seriously damaged.
Long Branch Police Capt. Jason Roebuck said there was a "domestic problem" between the occupants and that husband mistakenly drove into the lake bank.
A tow truck tied a cable to car and was able to remove it from the water in about 10 minutes after the incident was reported.
The incident occurred on Lake Drive, across from St. Michael's Church just before 9 a.m.
