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.
