IF LOSING a child is the worst kind of pain, then I can't imagine the kind of gut-wrenching anguish Channabel Latham-Morris will be in Wednesday as she returns to the city where her beloved son, Jamal Morris, died. The 27-year-old mechanical engineer with the bright smile and promising future was fatally injured April 18 in a hit-and-run accident while cycling in the wee hours near 45th and Market Streets. Morris, a 2011 graduate of Drexel University, was an avid cyclist, which is why Latham-Morris is scheduled to make the trek from Warwick, N.Y., to Philly.

A woman was critically injured Saturday after being ejected from a minivan that then landed on top of her after a multivehicle accident in Nicetown, police said.

That caused a 2012 Nissan Frontier pickup truck, driven north on 15th by a 61-year-old man, to hit the minivan on its rear passenger side, police said.
