A toddler who was injured in an alleged road rage crash outside of Houston had died.

The wreck already claimed the life of the boy's mother, Tania Vercher, when it happened Sunday.

The family's pastor says the 2 year-old boy passed away Monday evening in the hospital.

Police say the victim's car was hit by a pickup truck driven by Emil McMahon, who was allegedly trying to force his wife's vehicle off the road.

Witnesses had rushed to pull the boy from the burning car as Chris McCoy stated, "All I could picture was that being my son in that car seat and I knew I had to get him out, no matter what. The paramedics and the fire department was hollering get back get back, the trucks on fire, and I didn't care about all of that. My point was to get that baby out."

Deputies are waiting on toxicology results before filing charges against the pickup truck driver.
