By    |   Wednesday, 05 Mar 2014 04:03 PM

Brooke Dawkins, a 19-year-old University of Central Florida student who was struck by a pickup truck last week, is brain dead, her brother says.

Brody Dawkins posted on his sister's CaringBridge page: “Brooke is medically brain dead and has ascended from this life into the next. Her official time of death is 12:01 PM March 5, 2014. Per her wishes, Brooke will donate her organs to give the gift of life to multiple recipients across the country.”

“We thank everyone for the love and support shown over these past 10 days and we ask that you continue to be there to give strength to our family moving forward," he continued. "From now on, instead of praying for Brooke, you can pray to her. She will be listening, and she will be with us always. God Bless.”

In an earlier post, Dawkins said Brooke was “showing clinical signs” of being brain dead after she walked into the path of a Toyota Tundra on Feb. 23.

An Orlando Regional Medical Center official told the Orlando Sentinel that she couldn’t provide more information on Dawkins’ status other than that she is in critical condition.

Dawkins may have been drinking at the time of the accident, the Sentinel reported. Witnesses told the paper she stopped in a crosswalk to talk to someone before walking in front of the oncoming truck. The driver of the truck tried to stop and won’t be cited, troopers said.

Friends showed their support on Twitter.
