Commuters saw some extra traffic Wednesday afternoon, after a semi-truck rolled over on Highway 17 and the 80th Street Connector.

According to Delta police, a semi-truck towing a flatbed trailer had tipped over on its side after making a turn off of Highway 17 onto the connector. Delta police were on the scene just before 5 p.m.

80th Street was closed for two hours as Roadway Towing worked to secure the cargo and right the trailer.

No one was injured in the accident.

That same day, another semi-truck had tipped over on the southbound Highway 99 on ramp off Highway 91.

The ramp was closed from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. as workers cleared the vehicle.
