Soap Star Finola Hughes

Sideswipes Pedestrian & Car

8/7/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Veteran soap actress Finola Hughes hit a pedestrian and a parked car Thursday night in Hollywood -- but when it was all said and done ... SHE was the one who feared for her safety. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Hughes -- who appeared on "All My Children" and "General Hospital" -- was driving her 2008 Mercedes when she accidentally clipped a parked car and a 23-year-old guy who was getting into it.

We're told Hughes got scared when a witnesses chased her ... so she called police from her car -- and then pulled over to exchange info with the other people involved. 

We're also told alcohol was not a factor ... Hughes was not ticketed -- and the pedestrian only suffered minor injuries. 

Finola Hughes Fun Fact -- She was nominated in 1983 for a Razzie for her role in "Staying Alive."

THIS IS FOR SONJA. I am so sorry for your husband's experience. As a born and bred New England Yankee, your story caught my attention. That woman could have added, significantly, to your husband's disability. Perhaps that newly elected Ma. US Senator (I do not recall his name) will review and consider making changes so people, like that speeding woman, will not be able to pull the same stunt on others and get away with it. Certainly hope so. Hang in there! Best Wishes to you, both!
