CLERMONT man Bo Oliffe has died Tuesday morning, surrounded by family at the Royal Brisbane Hospital where he'd been fighting for life since a car crash a month ago.

Bo's mother Karen posted via social media Tuesday morning: "Bo is gone. Asleep in death awaiting the resurrection.”

It's been exactly one month since Bo's car crashed into a tree on Drummond St, Clermont on June 18.

He was transported to Clermont Hospital and then flown to the Royal Brisbane Hospital where he had remained on life support.

Bo's mum had been keeping the Clermont and wider Central Queensland community updated on his condition.

On Friday, she said that knowing her son was going to die "has taken the joy out of a lot of activities”.

"Knowing that Bo is going to die has given us time to plan things that a sudden death would not have allowed for,” Karen said.

"Neil and I have decided to go ahead and donate Bo's organs so we had a meeting with Meaghan from the donation team and a few things came to light.
