FREMONT, Calif. (NBC) -

An overturned truck carrying tons of garbage trashed a highway on-ramp just south of San Francisco. 

The truck flipped and littered a northbound Interstate 680 ramp with 22 tons of garbage Saturday morning. The ramp was closed for several hours while crews cleaned up the mess.

The driver of the truck told police he was going 15 miles per hour at the time. Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident, according to the California Highway Patrol.
