Police Officer Rogers was struck and killed by a van while he investigated an earlier accident in the emergency lane of the Downtown Connector, at International Boulevard

The driver of the van immediately fled the scene after striking Officer Rogers, dragging him more than 100 feet. One of the drivers involved in the earlier accident chased the van down and blocked its path before other officers arrived. The driver was arrested and was charged with first-degree vehicular homicide and hit-and-run.

Officer Rogers had graduated from the academy only one month prior to being killed in the line of duty. He is survived by his mother and two brothers.

Allen Rogers was my neighbor and childhood friend. My sister and I would always go to the Rogers home after school til my parents came home and Allen cut our grass. I remember watching the news, hearing the name and seeing the face and I knew immediately. I was in complete shock! I have been in contact over the years with your momma and your brother Brian. All seems to be well. May you continue to rest peacefully. You and your dad both.
