The donor is Ruben Pacheco, 18, of Albertville. He was fatally injured when the pickup he was riding in flipped off the highway, ejecting him. He died Monday at Huntsville Hospital. He was one of four people who died from the accident.
“By him losing his life. People are going to gain life,” Lauri Batie, a family member, told WHNT. “And he is still going to live on through them and that’s the way that I look at that.”
