Damaged building to be demolished in Montague

MONTAGUE COUNTY, TX (RNN Texoma) - The owner of a building hit by a pickup truck last month cannot be saved.

On August 19, the driver of the pickup drove through the courthouse square and ran into the building.

The truck caught on fire and the driver did not survive.

The building that was erected in 1884 will be demolished in the next three to four months.

The owner had plans to build a theater in the historic building but is now planning to build a retro 1950s style gas station and will include the old stone in the construction.
