Boat Falls From Trailer, Blocks Lane of Washington State Road

Drivers on a Washington road encountered a strange sight on Monday: a boat. According to UPI, a driver had been pulling the boat on State Route 97 when it slid from its trailer. The sleek-looking ski boat ended up partially blocking the road. Trooper and public information officer John Bryant tweeted photos of the boat, which showed long white skid marks on the pavement. “Failure to secure boat with tie downs and safety chains results in a blocked lane, damage to the boat, a tow bill and a ticket for failing to secure a load,” Bryant wrote.
