This story has been updated.

In the matter of a minute, the life of 20-year-old Tyrone Jackson, formerly of Sloatsburg, was lost when his car crashed into a commuter bus on Friday after skidding on ice and snow on Route 17 in Tuxedo, according to Tuxedo Police.

The accident occurred around 10:30 a.m. when Jackson was traveling in the right-hand northbound lane in a 2005 Honda on Route 17, which was still covered with snow and ice from Thursday's storm, when he crossed lanes into oncoming traffic, hitting a Coach USA commuter bus, said Lt. John Norton.

"It's very unfortunate the right lane he was traveling in still had some ice and snow," Norton said.

Since then, an outpouring of support and love for the 2015 Suffern High School graduate, has been taking place on a GoFundMe page set up by a family friend to help the wrestler and football player's family with funeral expenses.

In a matter of two days, more than $17,000 of the $20,000 goal has been donated.

On the page, the tribute says: "Those who knew Tyrone will miss his friendly smile and his infectious personality. His teachers, friends, family and teammates will forever remember Tyrone."

Suffern Football tweeted: "Suffern lost a great young man today. Rest in nothing but peace and happiness Tyrone and watch over us. Prayers up🙏🏼 #GoneButNeverForgotten."
