1. Missing the main verb, For me It's incorrect.
2. It's correct

Sorry for causing misunderstanding, I just check the oxford Dictionary.
hurry can be used as verb, so hurried is the past tense of verb - hurry.
I hurried home....., It may possible to use. I have no idea whether it's correct, but the grammar is right.

I hurried home to meet them. (verb)
The sentence is correct. You have not identified the word type correctly.

2 is okay but sounds awkward in comparison to (1).
