You can't destroy a particle.You can produce new particles or radiation by colliding protons (or neutrons...), but, in the sense that they explode and disappear, it is impossible. Nevertheless, you can get muons, gamma-rays, or, more interesting, you could be able to "see" the quarks inside the protons for a moment.
