Condition unknown for pedestrian in crash

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

Frederick Rogers, 42, of Dixon, was walking east across Galena near Family Video just before 6 p.m. Tuesday when he was hit by a southbound car driven by Sharon Wagner of Dixon, police said.

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.
