SAN ANTONIO -- An 18-wheeler overturned on southbound US 281 near the Hildebrand exit, effectively shutting down all southbound lanes.

All southbound traffic is being diverted to the Hildebrand exit. Southbound traffic at Jones Maltsberger is also shut down.

The driver admitted he took the turn too fast, according to SAPD. Crews at the scene have cleared the truck debris and estimate clean-up should be done around 7 p.m., according to KENS 5's Gary Cooper.

At least 11 units were called to the scene, according to the SAFD's active call page.

There are no injuries reported.
