TULSA - A man treated for a medical condition was likely unconscious when his car veered into a Tulsa International Airport window and coming to a halt in the baggage area early Saturday morning, according to authorities.

No one was badly hurt in the accident that happened around 4:05 a.m., but a floor-to-ceiling pane of glass was shattered in the baggage area when the car slowly crashed into the building, according to police reports. The man was an employee at the airport. There were no passengers in the area at the time of the crash.

The Tulsa Fire Department also was called to the scene and they tended to the man who was transported to the hospital in non-emergent condition. Officers say he was alert when he was taken from the scene.
