BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge residents were met with a new type of traffic nightmare Thursday afternoon after a boat fell from a trailer near a busy intersection.

Around 3:30 p.m. Thursday, commuters using one of the city's major highways were met with a large sailboat blocking their path.

Photos sent in by a WBRZ viewer show the boat marooned on Florida Boulevard near O'Neal Lane. Witnesses say the 25-foot vessel fell from a trailer after the vehicle towing it came to a stop at a traffic light.

Authorities are currently on the scene trying to remove the watercraft.
