A Kansas boy has succumbed to wounds he sustained in a crash involving a drunken driver earlier this month, local news outlets said.

9-year-old Nolan Davidson has been in a medically induced coma since Dec. 1 when a drunken driver crashed into his family’s car while they headed to a basketball game.

The boy suffered severe wounds including several fractures to his head and significant brain swelling. He passed away from his injuries on Thursday.
