NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - The family of the teen parents that were killed and a 5-month-old baby that was in critical condition, announced Tuesday evening that the baby will be an organ donor.

Toby Lackey and Cali Minor, both 19, were killed in the crash in the 4200 block of Old Murfreesboro Road around 1 p.m. Sunday. Their 5-month-old son, Jayden Lackey, was in the back seat of the car.

According to a Facebook post from Jayden’s grandmother, Ginger Minor, after doing a CT scan several times to make sure there wasn’t any brain function, on Tuesday evening doctors had considered the baby dead.

“We decided that Jayden is going to continue being the incredible boy he is by helping other babies to get to live a better life through organ donation,” Minor said in a Facebook post.

The family of Jayden told WSMV the baby is being kept on life support for possible organ donations.

The GoFundMe account was set up by Minor’s uncle to help with expenses.
