Boat falls off trailer on motorway

Wednesday 6 Feb 2013 12:58 p.m.

By 3 News online staff

A boat fell off its trailer and blocked the fast lane of Auckland’s northern motorway this morning.

A police northern communications spokesman says the vehicle carrying the boat jack-knifed and rolled, causing the boat to fall off the trailer about 11am.

The accident happened in the north-bound fast lane between the Esmond Road and Onewa off ramps.

Initially, at least one lane was blocked, but the scene was completely cleared by 12:20pm.

No injuries were reported, but the police spokesman says there could have been a couple of other small collisions nearby following the initial incident.
