It says southbound, so hopefully it's not one of our OSO friends.
ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A two-vehicle accident on Florida's Turnpike Sunday afternoon near Fort Pierce caused a boat to block southbound traffic for several hours, resulting in it being backed up for at least six miles at one point.
Around 4:47 p.m., a truck towing the boat and a septic tank truck collided near mile marker 164, disabling both vehicles and causing the boat to fall off its trailer, said Lt. Gene Phillipson, of the Florida Highway Patrol.
Road crews blocked one of the two southbound lanes because of the boat.
Around 6:20 p.m. road workers were still waiting for a tow truck to remove the boat, Phillipson said. At about 7 p.m., traffic was backed up for six miles.
There were no injuries.
