At 12:28 in the morning, Folsom Police responded to an accident on Folsom Lake Crossing. When emergency personnel arrived, they found the driver of a Honda Civic deceased and a BMW sport utility fully engulfed in flames. When the flames were extinguished, it was determined the driver hadn’t survived. Police determined that the BMW was driving at excesive speeds, crossed a double yellow line, and struck the Honda.
In a move that stunned many, Folsom City Council decided to go against the grain and disassociate the city with Johnny Cash. 4 members of the public came forward to speak in favor of Johnny Cash, including the head of the Folsom Tourism Bureau… but the council decided to name it Folsom Lake Crossing, even though it doesn’t even cross Folsom Lake. Kerri Howell was the lone dissenting vote.
