TROY, Ohio -- Mark Ross got a phone call at 3 a.m. that no brother wants to hear--his teen sister had been killed in a car accident. The distraught young man instantly got in his car to drive to his mother and was in Ohio when he got pulled over by a cop for speeding.
Since he had an outstanding warrant, Ross was sure he was going to jail, especially since the trooper had his car towed.
But then, another officer showed up. Ross explained to Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison that his sister just died and he needed to get to his mom. And something truly stunning happened.
"I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry," he wrote in a Facebook post. "He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY."
But that wasn't all. Robison then drove Ross 100 miles just so he could meet with his family in Detroit.

"It was just so overwhelming," Ross said. "They were trying to help us."
And even better? He said that the kind cop gave him hope.
