ORLANDO, Fla. -

A UPS truck driver was injured early Wednesday after he crashed his tractor-trailer into a building.

The accident happened just before 1:30 a.m. at Benton Express, Inc., which is located at 1150 Landstreet Rd.

According to Orlando Police, the driver claimed he was cut-off by another vehicle.  That caused him to lose control of his truck, which veered off the roadway and crashed into the building.

Firefighters said the driver had to be cut out of the truck cab after he was stuck inside for 30 minutes.  He was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.  No one inside the business was injured.

UPS representatives would not confirm if the truck was carrying any packages.

Police said the building seemed stable after the crash, but code enforcement workers plan to check its structural integrity.
