VENICE - An overturned boat on I-75 slowed traffic for a few hours Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened around 4pm near the River Road exit in Venice. Troopers say the vehicle towing the boat and a van collided, as they skidded on the wet pavement. The boat overturned, blocking southbound lanes on the interstate for nearly two hours.

The driver of the van was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Troopers believe thunderstorms moving through the area at the time played a role in the crash
