Toney, AL – Christina Bustamante Killed in Dump Truck Crash on Toney School Rd

2.27 Moundville, AL - James and Mary Pope Killed in Head-On Collision on AL-69

Toney, AL (September 28, 2020) – An automobile accident reported on Tuesday claimed the life of a United States Postal Service worker in the Toney area. On September 22, the police, firefighters, and medics in the Toney area responded to the site of a collision.

Reports show that at around 9:30 a.m., 40-year-old Christina Nichole Bustamante was on-duty as a United States Postal Service worker. As Bustamante traveled down Toney School Road in her 1992 Jeep Cherokee, she was struck by a Peterbilt dump truck.

Bustamante was fatally injured in the accident. She was declared deceased at the scene as a result of her injuries.

The driver of the Peterbilt, who was not injured in the accident, remained at the scene and spoke with Alabama Law Enforcement Agency troopers. At this time, the incident remains under investigation with the ALEA.

We would like to offer our condolences to the family of Ms. Christina Nichole Bustamante. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Truck Accidents in Alabama

Reports provided by the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA) show that approximately 140,000 people are seriously injured in semi-truck accidents across the United States each year. Although we would like to think that everyone overcomes their injuries, the size and weight of semi-trucks mean that these vehicles are more likely to cause life-altering injuries. In fact, more than 5,000 people end up passing away from their injuries.

In comparison to all other types of collisions, semi-trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles are responsible for roughly 12% of all fatal traffic incidents each year. Vehicles that are traveling at a high rate of speed are more likely to cause severe injuries. In fact, the majority of accidents are a result of negligence. When it comes to semi-truck accidents, there are several reasons why drivers and trucking companies can be held liable for damages, injuries, and deaths. Whether your loved one lost their life in an accident caused by an impaired driver, a reckless driver, due to mechanical failure, or another reason, it is imperative that you seek legal guidance from a qualified wrongful death attorney in Alabama as soon as possible. You may be entitled to compensation to cover funeral costs, lost earnings, and more.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.

Attorney Brown resolved my case to my absolute satisfaction and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.
