A GoFundMe campaign had raised more than $4,700 as of Tuesday evening for the family of the 29-year-old man struck and killed by a car on the New Jersey Turnpike early Monday morning.
Francis S. Marte, 29, of New Brunswick, rear-ended another car on the northbound lanes in Edison around 3:05 a.m., NJSP Trooper Charles Marchan said.
He parked his car in the lefthand shoulder and was trying to cross the highway when he was struck by a Chrysler Voyager, Marchan said.
No other people were hurt.
Nancy Rios remembered Marte on the GoFundMe as "a good person with a good heart."
