    Loved ones are mourning a father of four who was struck and killed in a hit-and-run on I-95 overnight.

    Ronald Jahmail Williams, 46, of Chester, Pennsylvania, parked his vehicle on the Highland Avenue exit off-ramp at I-95 southbound in Chester City shortly before 2:50 a.m. Saturday. Police say Williams got out of his vehicle for an unknown reason and was then struck by a car that was passing by. The driver continued south on I-95 toward Delaware.

    Williams died from his injuries. Police believe the striking vehicle is a black, newer model Volkswagen with front-end and front-windshield damage.

    Williams, known by his friends as "Peabody," was a popular figure in his community and a father of three sons and one daughter.

    "I've known him for years," said Mike Mills. "Good friend of mine. Well-liked guy. Fun-loving guy."
