Boat runs aground on M1 + gallery
April 19th, 2009
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.
