Family members identify the victim as Felix Bonilla of Boston. His sister Michelle says Felix was not selling drugs and didn't even know Dixon.
"He came to Worcester to spend Christmas with his kids. He has 7 kids...5 of his own and two that he raised,” Bonilla said.
Dixon was charged in a similar hit and run last year, in which the victim was dragged.
