'Home And Away' Actress Taken Off Life Support

'Home And Away' Actress Taken Off Life Support

The driver of the four-wheel-drive, 50-year-old Craig Whitall, was reportedly travelling home from a Nowra methadone clinic when he was also killed in the collision.

Meanwhile, back at the hospital where Jessica was still in coma, friends and family surrounded Jessica from her hospital bed during and after the funeral, saying it was important she had support.

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.

Jessica, 28, had been in a critical condition at St George Hospital, New South Wales, after she was badly injured in the same horror smash on Princes Highway.

While the parents had died instantly, the sister died three days later in the hospital.

The 29-year-old and her family were fatalities of a horror auto crash on the New South Wales south coast on St Stephen's Day.




Yesterday, hundreds of mourners are said to have gathered at St Mary's Church to pay their respects to Jessica's family, 69-year-old Lars, 60-year-old Vivian, and 21-year-old Annabelle, with relative Paul Ponticello pointing out the injustice of the tragedy as Lars was such a "careful" driver.

In a funeral notice, Lars, Vivian and Annabelle were described as a "dearly loved and cherished father, mother and sister to Jessica".

It was the third serious crash between Berry and Ulladulla in recent weeks, including the one in which the Falkholt family were killed.

Jessica Falkholt appeared as Hope Morrison on 16 episodes of Home and Away, with her stint on the long-running TV soap ending in November 2016.

Whitall was a habitual traffic offender with more than 60 convictions to his name, according to The Daily Telegraph.

28 year old Jessica Falkholt has been clinging to life since her family's vehicle collided head-on with a 4WD driven by a man we now know was on his way home from a methadone clinic. We'd always have a laugh. Her first feature film, Harmony, is due for release later this year.
