WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A man is facing several violations for a wreck that backed up traffic on College Road Thursday morning.

According to authorities, the driver was headed southbound on College Road when he came to a stop near Oriole Drive.  The load on the back of his truck shifted and a water tank fell onto the road and traveled over 400 feet.

The accident slowed down traffic for about an hour but no one was injured.

Safety officials cited the driver for failing to properly register the trailer and carrying an overweight load.
