A SigAlert was issued a little after 8 a.m., forcing the closure of one lane and the Vincent Avenue onramp.

Caltrans and the CHP responded to the accident, which involved an unconfirmed number of other vehicles. Officials could not say whether the rain had anything to do with the accident.

The trailer will need to be unloaded before it can be righted, said CHP spokesman Mike Harris, who said crews plan to have the freeway cleared by 11 a.m.
