This boat, named Mighty Grateful, fell off its trailer May 4 and landed on the side of Collier Boulevard when a vehicle came a little too close to the driver. '(He) lost control and the truck went one way and the boat went another,' said Collier County Deputy Gina Ruggiero. The driver and passenger suffered minor injuries and were transported to Naples Community Hospital. The vessel was damaged on the left side, though Ruggiero said that the extent of the impact had not yet been determined.
