In this paper we present a new approach to the solution to a generalized version of Hughes' models for pedestrian movements based on a followthe- leader many particle approximation. In particular, we provide a rigorous global existence result under a smallness assumption on the initial data ensuring that the trace of the solution along the turning curve is zero for all positive times. We also focus briefly on the approximation procedure for symmetric data and Riemann type data. Two different numerical approaches are adopted for the simulation of the model, namely the proposed particle method and a Godunov type scheme. Several numerical tests are presented, which are in agreement with the theoretical prediction.
