A truck damaged a business west of Beggs Friday morning, injuring the driver. The crash happened just before 8:30 a.m. at the Callidus Technologies facility on state Highway 16.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the driver of the semi veered off the highway and struck a corner of the building.  Troopers say the driver appeared to be tired. 

There were employees inside at the time but they weren't hurt.  The truck driver was taken to the hospital to be checked out.  He is expected to be treated and released.

The crash knocked out electricity in the area.

Callidus Technologies is headquartered in Tulsa.
