Denison Police said a motorcyclist sustained only minor injuries on U.S. Highway 75 early Friday morning after he collided with a boat that came loose from its trailer on the freeway.


Lt. Mike Eppler said the incident occurred in the southbound lanes of Hwy. 75 near the Crawford Street exit at approximately 1:30 a.m. Eppler said a pickup truck was hauling the boat when it became detached from the towing trailer. The male motorcyclist, who was traveling behind the pickup, then struck the boat.


“The guy had no serious injuries,” Eppler said. “He had some rash, but he’s okay.”


Eppler said the department’s report of the incident was not yet finished Friday morning and he could not say whether any charges or citations would be filed against the driver of the pickup.
