A left-hand turn and a moment’s distraction landed Charles Farrell in a pretty big hole Wednesday morning.

The 61-year-old Fort Wayne man was headed to lunch just before noon and turned south from Washington Boulevard onto Calhoun Street.

The trouble was Calhoun Street is closed because of a yawning 8-foot-deep hole in front of the Hilton hotel. Thinking the road had reopened, but wondering why he was looking at a police car parked just a few yards away with its lights flashing, Farrell accidentally drove his silver Chevrolet Lumina into the hole.
