Boat trailer mishap blocks North End traffic

Posted: Updated:

A crash in Burlington left a boat stranded in the middle of North Avenue.

The boat came off its trailer near the Beltline just before noon Monday. No one was hurt, but it held up traffic to the Roman Catholic Diocese property just past Burlington High School. The crash is still under investigation, but police say it looks the trailer was struck.

"It appears as though the second car behind the boat trailer was responsible for striking the boat and the trailer, knocking the boat completely off the trailer in the middle of North Avenue," said Burlington Police Lt. Jonathan Young.

Police do not think drugs, alcohol, or electronics played a role in the crash. North Avenue re-opened around 1:30 p.m.
