Josh Rogers, editor of Scoot! magazine, was involved in a serious accident March 2 while on a monthly Vespa Club Los Gatos ride aboard his new TGB Laser 150.
Rogers was struck head-on by a car — which, according to witnesses, had "drifted" into his lane on a twisty section of Hwy. 9. Rogers was airlifted with numerous lacerations, severe fractures and dislocations. He faces a lengthy recovery.
"Scoot! is a small publication, but many people across several industries have come to depend on Josh as both a friend and an industry professional," says Joel Martin, president, Martin Racing Performance. "I know he's been a good friend to me over the last few years and I am at a loss for words to express how I feel about this accident."
