A 15-year-old boy who was a passenger in a car that went airborne and hit a building in North Minneapolis last week has died from his injuries.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed that the teenager, who was initially listed as being in a "critical" condition following the Mar. 11 crash, died at North Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, Mar. 16.

He has been identified as Daviegh Lee, of Minneapolis, whose cause of death was listed as multiple blunt force injuries.

It followed a crash at 37th and Fremont on the morning of Mar. 11, with police saying a black sedan was traveling north on Fremont "at what appears to be a very high rate of speed."

The car then struck a berm after "losing control and likely went airborne," striking the commercial building at 3701 Fremont Avenue North.

A woman believed to be the driver of the car was listed in a "serious but stable" condition, with another boy in the vehicle also listed as serious but stable.

The investigation into the crash continues.
