ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities said a meteorologist for The Weather Channel died by suicide when crashing his car through an Atlanta parking garage wall and plowing into an adjacent hotel, injuring a worker.
Authorities said 39-year-old Nicholas Wiltgen was pronounced dead Sunday evening after the crash at Midtown Atlanta's Colony Square Mall.
Mark Guilbeau, senior investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office, said Wiltgen's death was a suicide.
Atlanta police spokeswoman Kim Jones says Wiltgen's car traveled about 20 feet into the adjacent W Atlanta-Midtown, where it hit a hotel worker in a storage area. The worker was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
