TROY, Ohio – A man is thanking a police officer who helped him get through a difficult moment after learning his sister passed away unexpectedly.

Mark E. Ross was speeding through Indiana early Sunday morning on his way to Detroit, after getting heartbreaking news that his little sister passed away in a car crash.

“At 3am I got a phone call stating that my sister had been killed in a car accident due to some young dumb punk!” Ross wrote on Facebook. “I haven’t slept and instantly got on the road. Of course we were speeding, trying to get back to Detroit.”

Sgt. David Robison,  pulled him over, Inside Edition reports. Ross said his heart immediately sank.

“I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant,” Ross wrote.

But instead of arresting him or giving him a ticket, Robinson prayed with Ross after learning his sister passed away. Then, he escorted Ross 100 miles back home to Detroit, protecting him from getting pulled over again.

Ross said he was completely overwhelmed by Robinson’s kindness.

“Everyone knows how much I dislike cops, but I am truly grateful for this guy,” Ross wrote on Facebook.

Ross told Inside Edition that Robinson even has plans of attending the funeral.

“He gave me hope,” said Ross.
