Big Rig Crash Kills Modesto Woman
I’m Ed Smith, a Modesto personal injury lawyer. A Modesto woman was involved in a crash with a big rig and a pickup truck during the afternoon of Friday, April 7, 2017. Sadly, the woman passed away due to the fatal extent of her injuries.
A woman was behind the wheel of her Ford Mustang traveling westbound along Highway 108/120 in the vicinity of Stearns Road at approximately 4:45 pm. A big rig was traveling eastbound along the highway at the same time. For unknown reasons, the Ford Mustang and the big rig crashed. A Chevrolet Silverado was traveling westbound and was also involved in the collision.
The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado and the driver of the big rig suffered minor injuries as a result of the crash. The woman driving the Ford Mustang was identified as 47-year-old Christene Busser of Modesto. Unfortunately, Busser was pronounced deceased at the scene.

What Caused the Crash?
It is still too early to determine a cause of the crash. Authorities generally take from seven to ten days to process a Traffic Collision Report. Investigators are looking into whether drunk driving played as a factor in the collision.
