A second child has died following a horror car and truck crash that claimed the life of a mother and daughter in south-east Queensland last month.
The family of five was travelling along the Gore Highway at Captains Mountain, west of Toowoomba, before colliding with a truck just after 7am on July 22.
Lotsy Jose, 35, and six-year-old daughter Catelyn died as a result of the crash with her husband Bipin and two sons, Chris and Caiden, being rushed to Brisbane hospitals in serious conditions.
The family’s eldest son Chris today died away from his injuries.
A fundraiser to support the family has since raised over $485,000, with organiser and family member Martin Mathew revealing the family had only moved to Australia six months ago.
“Lotsy was the family’s breadwinner, while Bipin was looking for work,” Mr Mathew said.
“Funds raised will go directly to the family to help towards Lotsy’s and Catelyn’s funeral costs and other expenses.”
The 38-year-old truck driver was not seriously injured.
