Traffic slowed down for hours early Saturday morning when a pickup truck towing a boat on a trailer jackknifed and crashed.

It happened around 6:45 a.m. near mile marker 17 on Interstate 4, in the westbound lanes.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of a Ford F-250 was driving too fast while towing a 24-foot boat and the trailer began to fishtail.  At that point, the truck and trailer jackknifed and the trailer separated from the pickup truck.

The trailer and boat skidded across the road, finally coming to a stop in the outside lane and paved shoulder.

No one was hurt in the crash, but the outside lane of I-4 was shut down for about two hours.  The driver of the pickup was cited for driving too fast for conditions.
