Fredric Reid of Grand Haven had just taken a 1987 Bayliner cabin cruiser out of the water for the boat’s owner, John Cook, also of Grand Haven, Boyle said. The boat was strapped to a trailer, but the straps broke when Reid stopped at the Jackson Street intersection about 3:30 p.m. The boat slipped off the trailer and partially into the intersection.

Reid had already called a towing company when police arrived on the scene, Boyle said, and the slightly damaged boat was put back on the trailer and secured with new straps.
