Firefighters in Toms River say the occupants of a sedan that became submerged at a boat ramp were uninjured.

The Silverton Volunteer Fire Company said in a social media post that they were called to the Alabama Avenue boat ramp along with Silverton EMS and Toms River police. They arrived to find a Volkswagen Passat submerged in the tidal creek near the ramp.

“The caller was a passing resident [who] saw something and called 911,” the post said. “Upon arrival the vehicle was deemed safe and unoccupied with all occupants accounted for and not injured.”
