A water truck rolled over in Puyallup Tuesday night and officials are still trying to clear the road.

“It’s taken them all night to get it uprighted,” Washington State Department of Transportation spokeswoman Claudia Bingham Baker said.

The incident occurred at 7:50 p.m. on the ramp of southbound state Route 167 leading to westbound state Route 512.

Traffic has been passing the collision on the shoulder.

UPDATE as of 6:40 a.m. All lanes are now open.

The scene is expected to be cleared about 6:45 a.m.

    I hope the driver is o.k. Everyone needs to take that ramp a bit slower.
