SARASOTA COUNTY - A driver towing a boat caused a big back up on Interstate 75 Monday morning.

Troopers say a tire on the boat's trailer broke off near the Jacaranda Boulevard exit just after 10am. That tire hit a Scion, causing that driver to lose control and overturn in the median.

The truck that was towing the boat also lost control, resulting in the boat and trailer overturning in the median.

The driver of the Scion suffered only minor injuries. There were no reported injuries in the tow vehicle.

Traffic on the interstate was backed up for hours.

A SEAFARING motorist found himself `shipwrecked' on the M1 this morning after his boat trailer separated from a jeep.

Emergency crews were called to a northbound lane of the Pacific Motorway near Oxenford, when the trailer carrying a tinnie detached from the 4WD and became lodged in the median strip about 11am.

An RACQ tow truck was called to help remove the boat from the motorway as two police cars warned other drivers of the traffic hazard for about half an hour.

Nobody was injured in the the accident.

In an unrelated accident on Tuesday, a trailer came loose from behind a truck and crashed into a mobile home at Hall’s Manufactured Homes on Veterans Parkway.

A GMC Sierra, driven by James Edwards, of 908 Barbara Circle, was towing the trailer on South Veterans Parkway at 7:56 a.m. Tuesday. As the truck passed the 31st Avenue Southeast intersection, the trailer came off the hitch and rolled off of the roadway.

The trailer hit a Destiny mobile home at Hall’s Manufactured Homes dealership on South Veterans Parkway. The mobile home had moderate damage to its front, and the trailer had moderate damage to its right side.

No one was inside the mobile home when the accident happened, and no one was hurt.
