An overturned trailer on an on-ramp to Interstate 45 caused traffic delays in Galveston on Friday afternoon.

The accident occurred near the intersection of Harborside Drive and Interstate 45 just before 3 p.m. 

A trailer hauling two luxury SUVs fell onto its side when the truck pulling it attempted to turn on to the ramp, police said.

The truck didn't roll and no one was injured in the accident, police said.

Wreckers and the Galveston Fire Department were at the scene to help clear the accident. Outbound traffic was diverted down Harborside Drive to a second on-ramp as the accident was cleared.

The accident was cleared at 3:46 p.m.
