A 6-year-old boy who was in a car accident in Georgia earlier over the weekend, which already claimed the lives of his parents and brother, has died.

Titus Mason died on Wednesday, May 22, according to a GoFundMe created on behalf of the child’s family.

“Unfortunately, after extensive tests & the best of medical care, Titus was pronounced dead this morning & removed from life support. We thank you all for the outpouring of prayers, love, & support— it has been felt by the family & greatly appreciated in such a dark time,” read a tragic update on the fundraising page.

The Georgia Department of Public Safety told PEOPLE that said that authorities responded to a multi-vehicle crash on I-75 Southbound near mile marker 286 on May 19.

The department said that three occupants in the Kia – Dakarai Mason, 43, Erin Mason, 35, and Brandon Crawford, 14 – were pronounced dead at the scene. Two other juveniles, later identified as Titus Mason and his brother Noah, were transported to a hospital for medical treatment.

“Preliminary evidence at the scene indicates that a Kia van was traveling northbound on I-75 when, for reasons yet to be determined, it left the roadway, crossed the grass median, and entered the southbound lanes of I-75,” the department’s statement read.

“The Kia van collided with a Chevy Tahoe and a Toyota 4Runner,” police added. “Following this initial collision, the Kia van, and the Toyota 4Runner were struck by a commercial vehicle. Additionally, a Hyundai SUV struck the rear of the Chevy Tahoe.”

The Georgia Department of Public Safety said that Aimee Odom, 21, the driver of the Toyota 4Runner, also died at the scene. Friends of Odom told ABC affiliate WSB that she was en route to a graduation party before the incident.

The GoFundMe page for the Mason family said that they was heading home following a church function at the time of the crash, and that Noah is expected to make a full recovery.

“Please continue to pray for us, for the other families touched by this tragedy, & for our little Noah who is going through the unimaginable loss of his entire immediate family,” read a message on fundraising page. “There are just no words for this hurt.”

Erin Mason was remembered as a "beloved member" of the Holly Springs Police Department.

"Please keep the family of Erin and Dakarai Mason in your thoughts and prayers," the department wrote in a social media tribute on May20. "We ask that everyone be respectful of the family's wishes for privacy during their time of grieving.”

And the difficult task of telling Brandon's football teammates at Cass High School about what happened fell to coach Steve Gates.

“I do remember myself finishing, saying, ‘That’s all I got,’ “ Gates said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “And I turned around and walked back into my office. When I finished, oddly enough, they sat there for probably another 10 minutes and you could have heard a pin drop.”

Money generated from the GoFundMe page will go towards medical expenses for Noah. Funeral arrangements are currently being made.
