PALISADE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A freak accident on Interstate 70 could have ended much worse. No injuries or other crashes were reported after a boat trailer came unhitched in the middle of the road.
It happened in the eastbound lane right before the Palisade exit a little after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Our crews on scene say a driver in a pickup truck slammed on their brakes and the hitch came undone. That's when the boat, which was on a boat trailer, slid off and went careening into the median.
We're told the driver was cited for an unsecured load.
