Boat falls off trailer on motorway
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.
