Daphne, AL (WKRG)
It was an early start to the weekend traffic backup on Interstate-10 this morning. Three vehicles collided on I-10 eastbound just past the Daphne exit at about 7 this morning. Officials say a pickup truck towing a boat, a disabled vehicle in the median and tractor trailer crashed. In the collision, the boat being towed fell off of the trailer and came to rest on I-10. One of the men transferring the boat said they were moving the boat from Washington State to Miami.
“That is not amazing, that’s just crazy, it’s crazy I don’t know,” said Arthur Baganyan. He was traveling with the group of men transporting the boat. He says his son was behind the wheel of the truck towing the boat.
“ I was asking why, why did this happen, why Jesus did this happen and I was just running and praying, nothing else I was so scared just to make sure my kid’s alive, nothing else,” said Baganyan. Daphne Police and Daphne Fire and Rescue responded to the scene. It took about an hour and a half to clear the boat and damaged vehicles. No injuries were reported. Daphne Police are still investigating the crash.
