Calvert man, 48, killed when car crashes into backhoe

A Calvert County man was killed when his car smashed into a backhoe in a construction zone on Route 4 in Lothian late Friday, Anne Arundel County police said.

Police believe that Robert Franklin Farr Jr., 48, was speeding when he crashed his Chevrolet Corvette into the rear of the backhoe, which was traveling about 25 mph in the same lane as the Corvette. Farr was wearing his seat belt, police said. No one else was in the car.

The operator of the backhoe, Jose Israel Iglesia, was not injured in the accident, police said.
