A boat has been left high and dry on a state highway in the Coromandel after it became detached from the car that was towing it.
The eight-metre-long boat was blocking a main road near Whitianga shortly after 6am.
It was being towed on State Highway 25, Kuaotunu-Wharekaho Road, north of Whitianga when it appears to have come loose from the car and crashed, Northern Fire Communications shift manager Jaron Phillips says.
“The boat is blocking most of the lanes and fire are standing by until the crane arrives.”
There were no reported injuries.
