A historic Morganfield, Kentucky building that was in the early stages of a renovation project was torn down on Tuesday.
Tuesday morning, crews worked for hours to demolish the building that served as the former Wathen Drug Store on the corner of Main Street and Morgan Street.
The building was heavily damaged in a crash around one week ago, when authorities say a woman driving down Main Street had a medical emergency.
“She was traveling up west Main, and she had a medical emergency," said Chief Rick Millikan of the Morganfield Fire Department. "We don’t know if she passed out completely or what happened. She glanced off of another car in the intersection and that threw her into the front of the building.”
