COFFEE CITY, Texas (AP) - Traffic delays on one East Texas highway have been blamed on a boat with nowhere to float.

KLTV-TV (http://bit.ly/1MSwe6U ) reports nobody was hurt Friday when a pontoon boat fell off a trailer and onto Highway 155 in Coffee City.

Law enforcement officers in the town of nearly 300 people say the driver of the vehicle hauling the pontoon boat made a wide turn onto the highway.

The boat slipped off the trailer, overturned and ended up blocking several lanes of traffic.

A wrecker was brought in to help put the boat back on the trailer, as officers diverted other vehicles.

Coffee City is about 100 miles southeast of Dallas.
