Car crashes into Hagerstown home


A car crashed directly into a home in Hagerstown early morning on November 9.

According to the Hagerstown Police Department, the crash was reported around 6:45 a.m. on the 800 block of Salem Avenue.

The family that lives in the home says the driver, who police identified as David Hudlow, 57, of Hagerstown was pulling off Central Avenue when a car coming from Salem Avenue caught him off guard, and he floored the blue Tesla right into their front porch.

“It just scared me at first with the cops knocking on the door. I didn’t know what happened at first,” said Allison Peterson, a resident of the home, who was home at the time. “There were no injuries. Nobody was hurt, so that’s a good thing, but the whole front porch as you can see is gone.”

According to police, the weather was cloudy at the time. The driver was not charged, but the car had to be towed and was not drivable. The family of seven, including five children, says there is no structural damage to the house and that it was an accident.

Hagerstown Fire Department assisted.
