Witnesses said Troppoli struck a car parked outside Club Level in the 300 block of Main Street before heading north erratically on Main and eventually hitting the south wall of the convention center. The driver of the car fled, but was found inside the Marriott Hotel and later identified as Troppoli. He wasn't seriously hurt. Damage to the building was estimated at $15,000.
