November 04, 1990

A Churchville woman was injured on Wednesday when she grabbed on to a car traveling on Fallston Road and was dragged by the vehicle for about 25 feet, state police at the Benson Barracks reported.

Candella R. Hudson, 44, was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center at University Hospital in Baltimore. Her condition could not be determined.

Police said Hudson attempted to enter a 1990 Buick Riviera driven by William L. Hudson, 45, of Bel Air, while the car was stopped at a traffic light at the Pleasantville Road intersection.

When the traffic light turned green, the driver accelerated, pulling out from the intersection, unaware that Candella Hudson was holding on to the car, police said.

No charges have been filed in the incident, police said. It could not be determined if the Hudsons are related.
