No other casualties were reported as the container, which was being used as a changing room for airport employees, was empty at the time of accident.

According to police, the driver claimed to have “fallen asleep at the wheel for a brief second, causing the collision.”

Police said they initially suspected him of drunk driving, but did not find any evidence from surveillance footage.
