Man Tries to Drive Away After Rolling Over Truck

January 23, 2013

Truck Roll Over 1245On Saturday, January 19, at 3:25 am, an off duty Calvert County Deputy was stopped on Route 4 and Route 235, when he witnessed a pickup truck run the red light at the intersection. The deputy proceeded to make a traffic stop on the vehicle and noticed a large amount of damage to the pickup truck.

After speaking to the driver, Paul Michael Hudgins, 20, of California, it was determined that Hudgins had been involved in a single vehicle accident on Route 4 in the area of Fair Grounds Road. During the accident, Hudgins’s Toyota Tundra had rolled over and had come to rest on its passenger side. Hudgins was trapped in the vehicle but was able to kick a hole through the windshield and exit the truck. Hudgins then pushed the truck back onto its wheels and continued driving.

Hudgins was stopped on Route 4 in the area of Patuxent Boulevard; four and a half miles from where the original accident occurred. Hudgins appeared intoxicated at the time of the stop, and had admitted to drinking before the accident. The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this incident, and updates will made as they become available.

Hudgins was also arrested on March 20 2011, for driving while under the influence of alcohol and found guilty. He was given probation before judgment.

    His luck will run out eventually.

      Lets just hope he doesn’t take someone with him when it does. . .

      Hopefully, before he hurts or kills someone else!

    Wait. This young man was given probation before judgement for DWI??? Seriously? I might be way off base here, but do you think if he had been properly punished THE FIRST TIME there may not have been another occurrence? And, this is a known event. How many more were there? We all know there had to be more. Unbelievable.

    He was arrested almost 2 years ago when he was 18 for DUI and given PBJ… makes sense because I’m sure he is a great kid

    He is very strong to be able to push the truck back on its wheels. I think he probably had some help!!!!

    We need a law change … driving under the influence can never be probation before judgement. And the state insurance commission needs to allow the insurance companies to deny all property damage claims for the person convicted … innocent victim claims allowed only.

    These comments on here calling him a loser, etc, are completely unnecessary. You know nothing about him except that hes clearly made some very stupid decisions. He happens to be a great hardworking and kind person. He is still growing up and he needs to make some better choices, but that shouldnt influence your opinions on him. If you actually knew him, you would be shocked and sad to hear this happened. You also know nothing of the backround story as to where he was/why he was driving. So i wouldnt be so quick to judge. I hope that this is a wake up call for him, because obviously the pbj was swept under the rug like MOST are now a days, but in NO means does this mean he is a horrible person, who blatantly defies the law. Hes a growing boy who made two bad choices, two of which only hurt himself. Im not saying he couldnt have hit anyone but the point is, he DIDNT. Cut him some slack because im sure the law no longer will, and i can guarantee you he realizes the magnitude of his choices now. Hes an amazing boy with a huge heart, hes not a “thug” or someone who doesnt want to grow up, he works hard and made some very stupid choices, but you know nothing about him so you have no right to speak of him seeing as this website only tells you a very small piece of his story. Everyone makes mistakes, and im sure you wouldnt like it if every mistake you made were posted for the world to see. Let the law and his family handle this, and mind your own business and worry about your own troubles.

      My stupid mistakes are not posted on the internet because they DO NOT BREAK THE LAW! His mistakes break the law and therefore make it on this website.

      If you are stupid enough to make these decisions, then you get what is coming to you. Reap what you sow, right? I’m pretty sure at 20 years old, I was not driving around drunk. Someone from his family should step in and help him with the reality check he so clearly needs. I’d hate to see him on here in a few months for killing someone because he chose to drive drunk, yet again.
