  • Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt's 'life support switched off' one day after family's funeral

The family were in a devastating vehicle crash on Boxing Day that also claimed the life of the driver of the other auto, Craig Anthony Whitall.

Channel 7 reporter Samantha Brett wrote on Twitter, "Heartbreaking as life support for Jessica Falkholt is turned off a day after her family was farewelled".

On Thursday night, Jessica had her life support switched off weeks after the horrific accident on the New South Wales south coast, making her the fifth victim of the Boxing Day crash that killed her parents and sister.

Just yesterday their funeral took place at St Marys Cathedral in Sydney and today, Jessica joined them in peace. Bystanders managed to pull Jessica and Annabelle from the crash before the auto burst into flames, but Annabelle died three days later in Liverpool Hospital.

The devastating crash happened near Ulladulla on December 26. 51 year old Craig Anthony Whitall reportedly had a criminal record detailing more than 60 driving offences.

Jessica's parents Lars, 69 and Vivian, 60 died instantly at the scene.

Monaco set asking price for Arsenal and Liverpool target Thomas Lemar
Liverpool - as well as Arsenal - were heavily linked with a swoop for Lemar in the summer window but a deal never materialised. Speaking to the media this week, Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim refused to rule out a sale this transfer window.

It was revealed overnight that the man at the centre of the Boxing Day horror crash which killed four people, including himself, was allowed back behind a wheel. He had been jailed four times, The Daily Telegraph reported.

News.com.au report that Mr. Ponticello told the service: "The irony of the tragedy is that Lars was such a careful driver". "Whenever asking how long it would take to drive somewhere I would suggest an average for a normal driver and then add some additional time for the Lars factor". We always had a good laugh.

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

He also thanked the "saviours" who risked their lives to pull Annabelle and Jessica from the inferno.

Annabelle's best friend Brittany Macchetta said the 21-year-old had a passion for travel, art and Harry Potter.

Jessica has starred in the Australian film Harmony, which is set for release in early 2018.
