A water-tanker truck toppled from the flatbed trailer carrying it and blocked the Miramar Road onramp to Interstate 15 for about two hours Wednesday, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The accident happened about 11 a.m. Wednesday as the trailer driver was entering the freeway. As he came around the onramp curve to I-15 north, the water tanker shifted and fell from the trailer.

Apparently, the driver did not realize the water tanker was full, which caused the imbalance.
The onramp was shut down by the accident, as where the two right lanes of the freeway, until the vehicle could be righted and towed away.
All lanes were open by 2 p.m., according to CalTrans.
There were no injuries reported.
