“He’s doing better,” said Nora Marginean, the great-grandmother of Roger’s newborn son on the mother’s side. “But it looks like he is going to be disabled” after his last stay in the hospital, she said, with damage to Rogers “far beyond what we listed” originally. “He is still walking with a cane; his leg is not healing.”
While Rogers and his girlfriend are still looking for a place to live, the generosity shown to the family has shown “overwhelming support,” Marginean said.
“I’m so thankful for the support,” she said. “The generosity … even the bank said they have never seen anything like it.”
Rogers was the victim of a hit and run that left him for dead on Newtown Road north of Starke’s Grade while he was riding to work. He was transported to Sutter Roseville after he was found around 6:15 p.m. by Donna and Bill Bergmeister.
A fund for Rogers has been set up at the El Dorado Savings Bank in Placerville.
