The younger brother of a teenager fatally injured in a crash last week has died of his injuries.

16-year-old Mason Young of Flora died Wednesday at Carle Hospital in Urbana, according to Carle officials.

Mason Young had been hospitalized at Carle in critical condition since the June 27 crash, which occurred along US 45 in southern Effingham County.  The car driven by 18-year-old Chance Young ran off the left side of the highway by a bridge in a river bottom and landed on the bank on the south side of the river.  Chance Young was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

Chance Young's funeral is being held today in Flora.
