Jessica Falkholt: Former Home and Away actress's life support turned off

Lars and Vivian Falkholt Annabelle Falkholt and Jessica Falkholt

Home and Away star Jessica Falkholt has had her life support switched off and remains in a critical condition following the horrific vehicle accident that killed her parents Lars and Vivian Falkholt, and her sister Annabelle.

Her sister, Annabelle, 21, passed away on December 29 as a result of her injuries and was buried with their parents on Wednesday.

The Daily Telegraph revealed that the driver of the other auto involved, 50-year-old Craig Whitall, who also died in the crash, was a serial offender who had nine convictions for driving without a license, and had used dozens of aliases to avoid detection from the police. He was driving home from a methadone clinic when he struck the family of four.

Their mother Vivian, who was born in Italy before migrating to Australia, found the love of her life after Lars also moved to Sydney after growing up in Sweden, he said. Ultimately, Jessica remained in the coma until her life support was removed.

Her family has asked for privacy.

It has been revealed Craig - who also died in the fiery collision - had served four jail sentences for traffic offences, was banned for driving for nine years and had at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified, The Daily Telegraph reported.

There are mixed reports about whether the actress has passed away, with The Home and Away Facebook page sharing a simple heartfelt update last night, "Rest in peace lovely Jess".

Both Jessica and Annabelle were pulled from the burning wreckage and taken to hospitals. "A relative told Daily Mail: 'We made sure Jess wasn't alone and her friends were able to be there with her..."

According to various media reports, the 28-year-old's family made the decision to switch off her life support, just a day after her parents and sister, who were killed in the same crash, had been laid to rest.

At the time of the accident, Network Seven, Home and Away's broadcaster, released a statement saying: "Although her time on set was brief, once a part of the Home and Away family, always part of the family". "We take comfort in knowing they are together and always will be".

The crash occurred near Sussex Inlet on the NSW coast.

She is best known for her recurring role as Hope Morrison in the series "Home and Away".
