MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A large boat on the back of a trailer stuck on a southeast Memphis road caused a major traffic jam Wednesday afternoon.

A truck with a flat bed trailer was towing a cabin cruiser-style boat east on Shelby Drive when it was stopped at Riverdale Road.

The truck driver said he’d called police and was waiting on a power company to raise utility lines so he could proceed.
