CINNAMINSON, N.J. (AP) - Hundreds police officers, family members and friends have paid their respects to a New Jersey state trooper who was killed when he was struck by a passing motorist.

KYW Radio reports (https://cbsloc.al/1nHOdGb ) that a viewing for Trooper Sean Cullen was held Sunday at Saint Charles Borromeo Church, a day before his funeral. American flags and blue ribbons lined the streets of Cinnaminson, where Cullen grew up.

The 31-year-old Cullen died Tuesday after responding Monday on Interstate 295 in Deptford Township to a car on fire. Several fire trucks and police vehicles had emergency lights on. He was walking near the crash when he was struck.

New Jersey State Trooper’s union president Christopher Burgos says Cullen was “fulfilling his duty, as we are expected to do” when he was hit.
