Well, the boat made it into Weiss Lake, but unfortunately, it didn’t end there.

According to Cedar Bluff Police Chief Brody Moses – all of the trailer – and most of the truck wound up way wetter than expected when everything went into the water at about 6:00 pm Sunday at the state docks on Highway 9.

The driver of the truck was luckily only shaken up, telling Chief Moses it was simply a matter of brake failure that led to the “swim”.

The Centre Fire Department and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.
