JENNINGS, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say no workers were injured after a tractor-trailer crashed into a Turnpike Authority building on the Cimarron Turnpike in northern Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the truck drove into a Turnpike Authority building late Wednesday on U.S. 412 eastbound in Pawnee County. Tulsa television station KOTV reports (http://bit.ly/2apJdUJ ) that no one was inside the building, which is adjacent to the toll booth and serves as a break room.

Authorities say the truck's drivers told troopers that his brakes failed as he was approaching the toll gate.
