Large yacht on truck blocks central Ohio highway

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A large yacht has caused a traffic commotion on land, blocking part of a central Ohio highway during the evening rush hour.

A tractor-trailer carrying the white boat on Interstate 270 was unable to fit beneath an overpass Wednesday and had to be turned around on the highway, which encircles Columbus. Police temporarily blocked part of northbound I-270 on the city’s east side so that the tractor-trailer could travel the wrong way on the interstate and exit.

It wasn’t clear where the cargo originated, but police told The Columbus Dispatch that it was “a million-dollar yacht” headed to Cleveland.

Traffic in the area returned to normal later Wednesday evening.
