A procession was held place in Cobb County for a volunteer member of the Georgia State Defense Force.
Mark Strow, 52, was struck and killed by a vehicle early Monday morning.
According to a police report, the accident happened around 4:30 a.m. on Interstate 75 northbound, just south of Delk Road in Marietta. Strow was stopped on the interstate, assisting a disabled vehicle.
The police report said Strow activated white strobe lights, and put on a reflective vest, before exiting his vehicle. Moments later, another car traveling on I-75 hit the rear of Strow’s Ford Explorer, causing the SUV to collide with him.
Police said Strow died at the scene.
Wednesday, a procession took place as Strow’s body was transferred from the Cobb County Morgue to a funeral home.
