Memorial service set for cyclist killed in W. Philly hit-run

A memorial service for a bicyclist who died after he was struck by a hit-and-run vehicle in West Philadelphia a week ago will be next Saturday in his hometown of Warwick, N.Y., his family said.

Jamal Morris, 27, an avid cyclist and a Drexel University graduate, was riding his bright red Chainboard bicycle near 45th and Market Streets about 3:45 a.m. April 16 when he was struck by a vehicle.

Morris, who suffered massive head trauma, was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where he died two days later.

Next Saturday, Morris’ family will say goodbye to him at Union AME Church in Warwick.
