A pickup truck ended up in the water along the Delaware River on Thursday.

The truck slipped into the water as the driver and his wife maneuvered a boat onto a trailer along the boat launch at the marina at Neshaminy State Park in the Croydon section of Township of Bristol, mid-morning.

The man behind the wheel pushed his wife away as the truck slid through the water, Croydon Fire Company chief Tom Tryon said.

The man and woman were not seriously injured, but the man sustained a cut to the head, Tryon said.

The truck ended up in the water about 30 feet from the ramp.

The chief said the truck was a Toyota Tundra with only around 1,200 miles.

The Bucks County dive team responded to help Rob’s Towing hook up cables to remove the truck, which happened Thursday afternoon.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that the marina was located along Neshaminy Creek, near the river. We’ve since updated this story after a reader pointed out that we mistakenly thought the marina was connected to the cove and the river. In fact, it is only connected to the river.
