Officials say a sixth victim from a fiery crash in western Nebraska that killed a Minnesota family is on life support for donation of his organs.

The Nebraska State Patrol said Tuesday it was notified of the “legal death” of 56-year-old Terry Sullivan of Denver. The patrol says Sullivan is on life support in a Colorado hospital for organ donation. No details were released.

The driver facing charges in the accident is 53-year-old Tony Weekly. The Florida man remained jailed Tuesday on $100,000 bond.

The patrol says Weekly was inattentive and speeding through a construction zone Sunday when his truck hit several vehicles on Interstate 80. The crash killed a Minnesota couple and their three children.

Weekly is being held on multiple charges, including felony motor vehicle homicide.
