TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Police Department has obtained an arrest warrant for Luke Bigham in connection with Wednesday’s five-vehicle crash on Main Street in Trussville.

Bigham, known for his role as 10-year-old Ricky Bobby in the 2006 comedy movie “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” will be charged with reckless driving, a misdemeanor, according to Police Chief Don Sivley. His bond will be set at $1,000, Sivley said.

Sivley said Bigham has not yet been arrested, but will be contacted to surrender himself.

Sivley said Bigham was allegedly traveling in speeds in excess of 80 mph in a 35 mph zone. The Lexus that Bigham was driving struck another vehicle, sending his vehicle down the road in a spin.

Bigham said he got knocked out during the wreck’s impact and “don’t know what happened.”

Sivley said three people were reportedly injured in the crash. Bigham was the only person transported to a hospital. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

Sivley said Bigham didn’t exhibit any signs of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs immediately following the accident.
