Man hit by car permanently disabled

Jimi Lee Rogers, the man who was hit by a car while riding his bicycle on Sept. 10, will never quite walk right again.

“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.

    I send out Prayers for this Young Man and His Family. If I remember from a previous article, that Jimi Lee and His Girlfriend wanted to get married, but could not afford it. Well I can not pay for a Wedding, I would be honored to Preform the Ceremony free of Charge. I am an Ordained Minister in Good Standing. All that they would have to pay for would be the Filing fee with the County Clerks office. I can be reached via Face Book under Kellie Elledge-Bott. Good Luck and God Bless.
