Jessica Falkholt's life support turned off”

Craig Anthony Whitall, 50, a serial driving offender who was behind the wheel of the other vehicle, was also killed in the crash.

The life support of Home & Away star Jessica Falkholt has been switched off two weeks after her family was involved in a horrific Boxing Day auto crash which also claimed the lives of her parents and sister.

Lars and Vivian died at the scene of the crash while Annabelle, 21, was taken to Liverpool Hospital, and died of her injuries three days later on 29 December.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Jessica's life support was switched off on Thursday evening local time, one day after her parents and sister were laid to rest.

Heartbreaking news tonight as we hear that Australian actress, Jessica Falkholt's life support has been switched off. Everything we have done and every decision we have made has been done with the advice of doctors and social workers. "Jess was a very private girl and while we're thankful for public thoughts and interest, we are just trying to honour what she'd want".

She had reportedly undergone several surgeries, including the removal of a kidney and part of her skull but remained in a coma since the accident.

Paul Ponticello, Vivian's brother, gave a eulogy at the funeral.

'It is a day that will be hard to erase from our memory, ' he said.

"Their lives ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense".

"Whenever he'd ask to drive somewhere I'd suggest a time for an average driver and add on some additional time for the "Lars factor" because he was so careful". We always had a good laugh. You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever. Local reports have described Whitall as a "serial traffic offender" who was driving home from a methadone clinic when his auto collided with the Falkholt vehicle.

The crash has claimed the lives of all four Falkholt family members.

Whitall also lost his life in the crash.
