SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - A Red Bluff woman, who killed a man after she drove head-on into freeway traffic in an apparent suicide attempt, has been sentenced to 18 years to life in prison.

Grace Ward, 29, of Red Bluff, was sentenced during a highly emotional hearing on Dec. 7. 

Ward was arrested in the Jan. 7 crash that killed Ryan Folsom, 29, of Medford, OR, on I-5 in Redding. 

Prosecutors say three cars swerved out of the way before Folsom's car was hit.

Folsom attended medical school in San Antonio, TX. He was heading to Sacramento for a hospital interview before the crash.
