Police Stop Speeding Car, Then Drive Grieving Man 100 Miles To His Family

This kind officer went way above the call of duty.

When Mark Ross found out that his 15-year-old sister had been killed in a car accident, he knew he had to get to his grieving mother’s side as soon as possible. He asked a friend to drive him from Indiana to Detroit, and the pair was pulled over for speeding in Ohio. The driver of the vehicle was arrested because he was driving without a license and had an outstanding warrant.

The car was towed, leaving Ross stranded and still miles away from his family. That all changed when Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison showed up on the scene. In a Facebook post, Ross describes what happened next.

I explained to the officer that my sister had died and that I needed to get to my mother asap. I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY. He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy. He gave me hope.

Robison did drive Ross the 100 miles to meet a cousin at a coffee shop. Then, according to FOX 59 he committed to make the drive again in order to attend the young girl’s funeral. What an inspiring example of the power of human kindness! Thank you for you service and generosity, Sergeant Robison.
