The services of a car injury attorney would be useful in handling legal issues following the identification of the man who died in an auto crash in Downey, California. On Sunday, May 24th, the authorities disclosed the deceased’s name as Aide Bustamante, a 32-year-old resident of Huntington Beach.
The man died alongside a female passenger in the tragic accident that occurred on the afternoon of Saturday, May 23rd. The preliminary report disclosed that Bustamante met his end on Santa Ana (50) Freeway Off-Ramp, north of Paramount Boulevard.
The event that led to the accident began with a man identified as Cash Rencanzone, of Peoria, Arizona. He was heading southbound on the roadway in a Fiat 500 when he suddenly veered to the right. The act caused him to rear-end a Nissan Sentra driven by Bustamante.
The Nissan was heading north on Paramount before the accident took place. The police said that the vehicle drifted into a dirt embankment, and crashed into a tree. The impact of the collision ended the victim and his passenger’s life at the scene, and the medics pronounced them dead.
Rencanzone fled the scene on foot after the collision, but an unidentified witness chased after the man and caught him. The police took the driver into custody, but have not disclosed the charges against him.
The investigators ruled out drugs or alcohol as contributing factors, and the investigation remains active. Witnesses who wish to make a statement should contact the California Highway Patrol Santa Fe Springs Office.
Those involved in rear-end collisions should contact a car injury attorney to represent their interests.
