CLEVELAND -- Hundreds gathered Saturday morning to say their final goodbyes to Cleveland Patrol Officer David Fahey.
The funeral was held at Our Lady of Angels Church on Rocky River in Cleveland. About 2,000 people attended the mass.
Authorities say Patrolman David Fahey was setting down flares Tuesday to close the westbound lanes of Interstate 90 after an earlier fatal accident when he was struck.
A $500,000 bond has been set for the driver who's charged with aggravated vehicular homicide and failing to stop after a fatal accident in Fahey's death.
Family and friends say Fahey was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and lived serving his community.
