PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) — A woman adjusting a GPS device drove off the road and into a lake in northern New Jersey, but no injuries were reported.

The 35-year-old woman and two children were in the car when the accident occurred around 7 p.m. Saturday in Parsippany, authorities said. All three were able to safely escape from the vehicle before emergency responders arrived on scene.

Authorities have not said if the woman and the children were related.
