Hit-and-run victim "type of person you always wanted to have around."

An Ottawa native who died from injuries suffered in a Toronto hit-and-run is being remembered as a free spirit.

Jay McGinn was struck in Kensington Market last Saturday.

Jimmy McGinn says his brother - who grew up in Kanata - was the type of person you always wanted to have around.

"He was living a good life in Toronto. He was becoming a man, so to speak."

31-year-old Karen Fyfe of Oshawa was charged with failing to stop causing bodily harm.

It's expected the charges against her will be upgraded.
