The 11-year-old boy who suffered serious injuries after being involved in a fatal car accident in Beech Grove last June is now gradually re-learning how to walk. Reports said doctors at Riley Hospital for Children were unsure if John Rogers would survive his injuries when the vehicle he was riding in was struck by a man attempting to flee from police after a robbery in Beech Grove. The collision, which occurred in Fountain Square, involved three vehicles and resulted in the death of John’s grandmother, Donna Niblock, and the injury of his aunt.

Five months after the incident, John’s father Daniel told reporters that his son was discharged from the hospital in October and continues to improve. John is able to walk again with the help of a walker.

The driver who caused the accident, 22-year-old Matthew Edmunds, is facing severe charges and preparing to appear in court next month.
