Bigham is set to be in Trussville Municipal Court on Wednesday, July 16 at 4 p.m. in connection with a five-vehicle crash on Main Street in Trussville last month.

Bigham, who played 10-year-old Ricky Bobby in the movie, was charged with reckless driving in the June 4 accident. Bigham turned himself in to Trussville police June 5 and was released on $1,000 bond.
