Car plunges into 8-foot Calhoun hole
By Rebecca S. Green The Journal Gazette
A 61-year-old Fort Wayne man found himself the unwanted center of a lot of attention late Wednesday morning after he drove his car into an 8-foot hole on a closed downtown street.
Charles Farrell turned from Washington Boulevard onto Calhoun Street, thinking the road had been reopened. Instead he drove his silver Chevrolet Lumina into the hole right as the downtown lunch crowds hit the streets.
With cell phone cameras snapping photos and passersby debating how Farrell’s car would be salvaged, Farrell stood impassively on the curb in front of the Hilton Hotel as crews worked to pull the car out of the hole.
Safety officials from Brooks Construction, which is doing excavation work on the street, said they were taking statements from witnesses about how Farrell was able to turn onto the street. Barrels are placed at the Calhoun Street and Washington Boulevard intersection, but they are spaced wide enough apart to allow construction equipment to pass in between, officials said.
The car was eventually removed from the hole and a high-voltage electrical line running under the street was undamaged, officials said.
Farrell was also uninjured, with the exception of a small cut on his left hand.
