    http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Roger_Slifer For those of you who don't know who Roger Slifer is.

    I just saw this and thought it wise to spread the word.

    via facebook page of Mr. Flint Dille:
    "Bad news. Roger Slifer is in intensive care after being run over in a hit and run on Friday Night around 1:00. We had originally thought of keeping this quiet, because Roger is a fairly private guy, but as word is out and time might be of the essence if we're going to find the hit-and-run driver, I'll post what I know.

    Roger is in Ronald Reagan Hospital at UCLA (I have not been in to see him, but his friends Will and Barry have). He is in intensive care. The nurse on duty could only tell me that he was in critical condition with a brain injury. Will and Barry said that he was unresponsive, but was heavily medicated since they had to do some brain surgery. I think the truth is that nobody knows what will happen. Prayers would be a good thing.

    On the criminal front, it would be a very good thing to find the driver, not only for reasons of justice, but also insurance. We have no idea what Roger Slifer's insurance situation is, but we suspect that it would be extremely helpful for medical bills.

    The problem at the moment is that the Santa Monica Police do not seem to be making as much progress as they should. This might be inaccurate, but that's how it appears. Some phone calls might be helpful. I'll put everything I know in the next entry."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    "Everything here has been related to me by Roger's friends Barry and Will. My apologies if I've gotten anything wrong. I'll update.
    .

    There is a Social Worker involved. Her name is Darlene Read (sp?) (310) 262=9752. She was the one who first contacted Roger's friends Barry and Will after going through Roger's phone (Roger apparently has been unconscious since he was hit). She claimed that there was a description of the car, but nobody now has reiterated that. Will called her a few times but she seems to have a lot of meetings.

    Will and Barry chased down the cameras around the accident sight. The mall and other locations seemed to be willing to turn over the video to the police, but who knows how long they keep the video?

    They were given the names of two police officers. Investigator Jason Olson (310) 458-2201. The other one's name is Chris Dason (?), who apparently is out of town for a month. His number is 310 458-8954.

    Investigator Olson has not returned Will's call.

    Will and Barry put flyers on the corners near where the accident happened, but returned to find that they had all been taken down. While they were putting up new ones, some fellow named Elliot rolled up on a Segway. he claimed to be from the Santa Monica Business Development Organization and that putting up hit and run flyers was against the law and that he would take them down. Apparently, the woman who is runs this organization is Paulette Elliot. Her number is 310 458-6249.

    Meanwhile, a friend tried to get into Rogers apartment to see if he had any medicines, etc. or if he could find out who his doctor was, but the manager said he would not open the apartment unless the police came. He also wanted to know where the rent was.

    That's what I know now."


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "I posted the phone numbers because I think that it is probably important that they receive a lot of calls. Roger is an important guy in comics and animation world. We want this to be as high profile as possible.

    It probably wouldn't be a bad thing to blog this."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "For those of you who don't know. Roger Slifer is not only the creator of Lobo, but a long time producer in various generations of Transformers and a very good guy."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "UPDATE: Paulita said that they could keep the posters up for a week. So there are posters up."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "I believe it was 5th and Colorado in Santa Monica.

    Also, calling these people is good. "I'm a friend of Roger Slifers and..."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "Here's Roger's Wiki for anybody who blogs or does articles about him. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Slifer"

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    *************Updated 06/27/2012 @ 5:25pm EDT****************


    "It seems like we are narrowing on the car that hit Roger. Its a grainy shot, but a lot suggests that it is a white 2002 Subaru Impreza 5. Take a look. Might want to get this out to a lot of blogs. Maybe somebody has brought one of these in for body work. Or somebody will spot one that's damaged front (left or right?) or one that is being hidden.

    Amazing work, folks. We did through 2 hours of crowdsourcing what the police hadn't done in 3 days."

    A really disturbing situation concerning the lack of responsibility by some of the parties involved.

    I do hope, if the driver is found, that they do have appropriate insurance/ funds.

    My best goes out to both him and his family.

    I hope they catch the bastard who did it and lock him up, there's no excuse for why he couldn't stop and help Slifer out.

    That's awful.

    Best of luck to Mr. Slifer and all of his family.

    I want to hear some good news about his recovery next week.

    My prayers go him and his family. I hope he makes a speedy recovery and I also hope that they find the one who hit him. It's just disgusting to know that an idiot would hit and run a special person...

    That's rough, I hope he pulls through, the guy who hit him is caught, and that he can get his stuff sorted out.

    Figured this would have made it to the front page by now. Still no update that I've found. Hopefully this gets resolved quickly.

    I thought Social Workers only get involved when kids' lives are affected and not adult lives?
