Marathon County community establishes GoFundMe project to support widow, 8 children following car accident

MARATHON COUNTY - A Marathon County community asks for your support after a fatal car accident Friday morning left a family of eight without a father.

Michael Rogan, his wife Niki, and their seven children were driving to the hospital at approximately 4:30 Friday morning to deliver the family's eighth child when another car struck a deer that was crossing Wisconsin Highway 97 near Stratford. The collision threw the deer into the Rogans' van, causing heavy damage to the van, injuring some of the the children and killing Michael.

Niki delivered a healthy baby boy just hours after the accident, and none of injuries to the other children are said to be serious.
