Australian actor Jon Blake has died after suffering complications from pneumonia. He was 52.
The star lost his fight for life on Sunday.
The actor hit headlines in 1986 when he was involved in a car smash in the South Australian desert on the last day of filming movie The Lighthorsemen.
He was left permanently brain-damaged and never worked again, relying on his mother Mascot to look after him, before her death in 2007. His son Dustin then took over as his father's carer.
Blake's funeral will be held later this week (ends05Jun11).
