DIXON – The condition of a pedestrian struck by a car Tuesday on Galena Avenue was not available Wednesday because the man was in surgery.

At the time, Dixon Police Lt. Brad Sibley said, Rogers’ injuries seemed to be “pretty significant.”

Rogers was flown to a Rockford hospital before being taken to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

Authorities are investigating the accident.
