“When he pulled out, the boat wasn’t secure and it came off the trailer,” Hill said.
The owner of the boat, a Nunica man, was in the passenger’s side of the pickup truck when the accident happened.
The pair had planned to use the boat for the Salmon Festival fishing tournament today.
Crews from Dick’s Towing used two large cranes and straps at the boat’s bow and stern to lift it off the pavement and secure it back onto the trailer, according to Hill.
The four traffic lanes on Savidge Street were blocked for nearly an hour as the boat was relocated back to the trailer.
No one was injured in the accident; however, the boat sustained damage.
