The African-American Museum will be closed until an insurance adjuster can inspect damage caused when a car hit the building near Evansville's downtown and caught fire Saturday morning. Museum Executive Director Lu Porter says she hopes the doors will be back open soon. Police had responded to a call in the 1500 block of Judson, and were trying to stop the driver speeding away from the area. After the crash the car caught fire, and three officers pulled 21-year old Sean Whitlock from it.
