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.
