On Sunday, Instagram and Twitter users uploaded and shared photos tagged #redballoonsforryan—3-year-old Ryan Cruz Saldana, of South Pasadena, was struck by a truck on May 2 in Rancho Cucamonga. Red-haired Ryan was reportedly struck by a truck when chasing after a Frisbee.
“He loved his family. He loved Disneyland. He loved Ninja Turtles. He just really loved his family,” said Alissa Circle, a Saldana family friend told
