John Clarke, a rear passenger in the Honda, was flown to Royal Adelaide Hospital where he remained in a critical condition for almost a week. Tragically, authorities confirmed John, 86, died from his injuries on Monday.
His wife Cynthia, 84, was sitting in the front of the car being driven by their daughter Jackie, 54.
Despite the best efforts of paramedics, both women died at the crash site.

John and his wife lived in Clare and were last week revealed as keen golfers.
In the rented van were two international tourists. The driver, a 28-year-old man, suffered minor injuries while his 26-year-old female passenger is in a critical condition.
Police last week said the 28-year-old driver had been charged with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
In a statement on Monday, authorities did not say if there had been a change to those charges.

The accused is due to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on January 17.
SA Police Superintendent Darren Fielke previously said the open country road was one “where many people travel every day”.
“Fatalities that happen in regional communities have a really long-lasting impact because of the way (those communities) are structured,” he said.
The three deaths took South Australia’s road toll to 97 for the year.
At the same point last year, the state had recorded 60 road fatalities.
