Up the street without a paddle: Boat is found smack bang in the middle of busy intersection as owner fails to realise he lost his load

  • Drivers at a busy intersection were met with an unexpected surprise on Sunday 
  • Orange boat fell from the back of a trailer in Adelaide without driver noticing 
  • The driver’s mistake was picked up by a passing motorist and reported to police
  • Owner returned to pick up boat and was fined for carrying an unsecured load 

Drivers at a busy intersection were met with an unexpected surprise on Sunday afternoon in the form of a small boat laid casually across the freeway.

With the raised freeway looming overhead, it looked as if the Stejcraft vessel had incredibly survived a fall from a five-story height.

But the orange boat was not as indestructible as the picture may suggest, and simply had fallen from the back of a trailer who was driving underneath the overpass in western Adelaide.

The hapless trailer driver’s mistake was picked up by a passing motorist, who called SA Police. 

South Australia police said the owner had not realised the vessel had ‘slipped its moorings’.

He returned to pick up his stranded vessel after being contacted by police, a spokesman said.

The owner has been fined for an unsecured load.

The incident comes after similar incidents in Adelaide – where police had to deal with a ladder blocking a highway and a wardrobe hanging from the back of a car.
