The driver of a pickup hauling a boat was forced to slam on his brakes when a juvenile darted out in front of him on Highway 70 in Craven County causing the boat to slam into the back of the truck and come off the trailer.
The accident happened near Thurman Road. The boat blocked traffic in the West bound lanes of Highway 70 for awhile.
Highway Patrol says the driver and his son were headed east when the unknown juvenile jumped in front of him. That person then took off into the woods and hasn't been seen since.
There were no injuries in the accident.
Highway Patrol says the boat was a 20 foot Nautic Star which he estimated to be about $45,000.
