On the afternoon of February 13, a 2014 Chevrolet Impala was northbound on Concession 4 Road North near the North Side Road when the driver lost control.

Amherstburg Police report the vehicle rolled, landing in a farmer's field.

All four occupants managed to get out of the car as it caught fire.

Dyer was taken to a Detroit Hospital and died yesterday.

Dyer was a football player at Sandwich Secondary and Assistant Coach Matt Sarkis says Dyer's death is hard to accept.

"You won't find anyone on the team that didn't like him," says Sarkis. "He was well liked and went out of his way to do what he could, even if it was a position he wasn't comfortable playing in, if he was asked to do it he would do it and it is just the kind of kid that he was."

Police continue to investigate.
