A trailer with a tractor on it overturned while being towed by a big-rig on eastbound Interstate Highway 580 on the border of the cities of Dublin and Pleasanton this morning, blocking lanes of the highway for nearly two hours, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The solo-vehicle crash was reported at about 6:40 a.m. on eastbound Highway 580 just west of Foothill Road, Officer A. Paulson said.

No one was injured in the crash.

The two right lanes were blocked while authorities worked to get the trailer upright and move it from the roadway.

A Sig-alert was issued at 6:52 a.m. It was canceled by 8:38 a.m. when the lanes were reopened, Paulson said.
