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. The accident happened about 8:15 a.m. at the intersection of 15th and St. Luke Streets. Police said a 21-year-old man driving a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country minivan ignored a red light as he traveled east on St. Luke. 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.

The April evening began with a trip to the Phillies game. But the fun night out for a group of 21-year-olds from Lansdale ended with a gruesome accident that split a car in half. One passenger was left dead on the side of the road as the driver fled the scene. Emotion generated by the tragedy remained fresh three years later, as a Montgomery County judge Friday sentenced Sean Sperl, now 24, to three to six years in a state prison for the 2013 accident that killed Ryan Petrille. "This is a really, really sad day for two families who are in such pain on so many levels," said Judge Gary S. Silow.

Maybe high on the roof, so close to the sky, roofers such as James McCullagh feel invincible, towering over the world, towering over their fate. McCullagh, 60, said as much in federal court Tuesday, before he was sentenced to prison in connection with a roofing accident that killed his good friend Mark T. Smith, 52, on June 21, 2013. "It is a dangerous trade," McCullagh told U.S. District Judge Nitza I. Quinones Alejandro in a courtroom filled with about 50 spectators, the majority of them McCullagh's friends and many cousins.
