Just before 2:00 Friday afternoon in the 1400 block of the Liberty Bypass, Joseph Sierra ran into trouble with the large boat he was towing.
He saw the 27 foot boat was coming loose and tried to merge into traffic when the boat hit the guard rail, not once, but twice.
On the second impact, the boat became lodged in the guardrail.
That caused the boat to come completely off the trailer before he could get and the truck and trailer stopped.
Traffic was held up for a time until to boat could be re-mounted onto the trailer.
APD charged Sierra with failure to secure a load.
