No one was injured after a boat trailer came unhitched from a pickup truck on the Gandy Bridge Sunday, troopers said.
Around 5 p.m., the Florida Highway Patrol responded to reports of a boat accident in the westbound lanes of the Gandy Bridge.
Troopers say a 2012 Ford F150 was towing an 18-foot boat when the trailer hitch malfunctioned, then separated.
The boat and the trailer hit a concrete barrier wall, but no damage was caused.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
Troopers do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Questions must be asked:
1. Who made the hitch?
2. Who installed the hitch?
3. What inspections were performed?
4. The Finial One "Why did the trailer hitch fail?"
