Royal Terrace Apartments To Be Demolished After Damaged By Explosion

Danville, VA-- According to the city of Danville inspections supervisor, the apartment building that got damaged in a car crash and explosion earlier this month will have to be torn down.

Police say a man was drunk when he ran into the Royal Terrace Apartments on August 16. The crash severed gas lines which created a leak that led to the explosion. Six people were taken to the hospital.

The inspections supervisor said crews will have to check for asbestos before it can be torn down.
