Family Mourns Man Killed in I-5 Crash

Family Mourns Man Killed in I-5 Crash

Posted: Jan 9, 2018 6:50 PM

Redding, Calif. -- The smiles and hugs only tell a portion of Ryan Folsom's life.
The rest could be seen behind his hard work at school, both playing sports and as he continued his education to become a doctor. 
This happy family’s future , taken away after a woman chose to drive the wrong way on I-5.
Friends and family say Folsom was driving south on I-5 near Redding, to attend one of the several interviews he had lined up for his residency as he continued the path to become a doctor.
But around 1:15 in the afternoon, when he was passing Knighton Road in Redding.
Police say 28-year-old Grace Elizabeth Ward from Red Bluff was driving her grey Chevrolet Impala when she drove through the center median and onto the southbound lane hitting Folsom who died on impact.
Leaving his two boys, and his wife who is expecting their 3rd child this month.
Friends who remember Folsom say he loved being the hero and loved the idea of saving lives.
And when you spoke to him he looked in your eyes.
And he had a laugh that made you feel like you were the funniest person in the world.

In his world, everyone was his "bro" or his "buddy".
Family and friends have since started a go fundme page. Here is the link to that https://www.gofundme.com/ryan-folsom-memorial-fund
