The father of an autistic Massachusetts boy who died after his mother allegedly withheld cancer medication has died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash.

Eric Fraser died Thursday after being taken off life support earlier in the week. The 38-year-old Fraser and another biker collided in Malden on Oct. 25. The other rider died that night.

Fraser's son, Jeremy Fraser, died of leukemia in March at age 9. The child's mother, Kristen LaBrie of Salem, has been charged with attempted murder and child endangerment after allegedly failing to give needed chemotherapy medications to her son and missing his medical appointments.

Fraser and LaBrie had undergone a contentious divorce and he wasn't part of his son's life as his illness advanced. But Fraser lived with his son during his son's final days.
