Crews hope to remove SUV from building today

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Crews are just hours away from removing an SUV from a Downtown Richmond building and the work could cause a big traffic problem for your morning commute.

Slowly and carefully, work crews are trying to stabilize a Jackson Ward building that's in danger of collapsing.

Now that the forklifts are in place, crews will begin to stabilize all the walls before trying to get the SUV out. It's a time-consuming process, but one that's important because crews here want to make sure nothing else falls down.

It's been three days since a woman crashed her SUV into a VCU police car, and then ricocheted into the dining room of the Marshall Street Cafe.

The owner of the café, Kelvin Hanson, restored this building ten years ago, and will again be building it from the ground up.

Crews are asking you to stay away because of all the work that's going on.
