Truck towing boat crashes, blocks traffic on I-95

POMPANO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A truck, towing a boat on Interstate 95, crashed early Friday partly blocking northbound and southbound traffic near the Sample Road exit.

Rescue workers pulled a man on a stretcher from the debris of the crumpled truck which blocked several northbound lanes around 7:30 a.m.

The boat he was towing blocked traffic in southbound lanes.

The crash apparently happened when the truck was towing the boat in the southbound lanes, flipping the truck over the concrete wall onto northbound I-95.

Southbound delays reach back to the Palm Beach County line.

For alternates, drivers can use Florida's Turnpike, Powerline Road or U.S. 441.

No other information was immediately available.
