Ocean Gate Police Officer Jason Marles was hit and killed by an alleged drunk driver early on Thanksgiving morning. Friends and family have been bringing flowers to the spot where the accident happened.
The suspect was captured with several friends after attempting to flee the scene. Marles was trapped in his personal jeep, according to police which then exploded into flames after it was pushed into a guardrail.
Ironically, the accident happened just after the father of two was finishing his shift working at a DUI checkpoint on Thanksgiving Eve.
