>Boat in tow falls off trailer on Route 5

A 21-foot inflatable boat was en route from the U.S. Coast Guard station in Buffalo to Florida on Tuesday morning when it fell off the trailer it was being towed on and landed on Route 5 in Woodlawn, the Coast Guard reported.

The boat, turned over by the Coast Guard to the U.S. Navy on Tuesday, was in the process of being towed to Panama City, Fla., just after 11 a.m. along with two outboard engines and a trailer when the accident occurred, Coast Guard officials said. There were no injuries.

The boat was on its way to the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Florida. It was transferred to the Navy as an excess government property, officials said.
