SACRAMENTO -- The Capital City Freeway on-ramp at Auburn Boulevard closed for hours Thursday morning due to an accident.

Around 2:30 a.m. CHP responded to a semi-truck accident on the Auburn Boulevard on-ramp going onto Capital City Freeway.

The truck was driving too fast on the turn going onto the freeway, spun out and hit both freeway walls.

The driver suffered minor injuries but no one else was hurt.

The crash caused concrete and metal to fall about 30 feet onto I-80 westbound.

The debris did not hit anything when they fell and CHP cleaned them up off of I-80.

Caltrans inspected the structural integrity of the overpass and the on-rampĀ  and decided to close the on-ramp for a few hours while they worked on repairs.

The Auburn Boulevard on-ramp is now back open for traffic.
