A student of the University of Colorado perished on Monday after battling to stay alive following a collision with a tree last week at Eldora.

According to the Denver Post, 26 year-old, Bill Brockmueller was placed on a ventilator following his accident. He proceeded to stay on life support until Monday afternoon when his family decided to remove the ventilator. He died shortly after at Boulder Community Health’s Foothills Hospital. A website has been set up to memorialize the deceased.
