A man died on Thursday from injuries suffered three weeks earlier in the truck attack on crowds in the Riviera city of Nice, bringing the death toll to 85, authorities said.

Pierre Hattermann’s wife, Françoise, and son were killed in the attack, and his 14-year-old daughter is still in the hospital, according to French newspaper Nice Matin and other media sources.

“All my thoughts with the daughter, family and relatives of Pierre Hattermann who just died,” the president of the Riviera region, Christian Estrosi, said on his social media account.

The Islamic State terror group claimed the attack and hailed Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who drove a truck through a crowd of revelers on Nice’s seafront promenade on Bastille day before police shot him dead.
