Jessica Falkholt has been taken off life support after being involved in a car accident that killed four others

Australian actress Jessica Falkholt's life support has been switched off more than a fortnight after a horror crash that killed her parents and younger sister.

The 29-year-old star had been left in critical condition following a Boxing Day auto crash that claimed the lives of her immediate family.

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.

Lars Falkholt, his wife Vivian, and their daughter Annabelle have died, while Jessica Falkholt remains critical.

The other driver was Craig Anthony Whitall, a serial driving offender, who was also killed in the smash.

The family of Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt have been laid to rest. "Their lives ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense", he said, reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.

'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.

Craig Whitall, 50, was driving the other vehicle and also died instantly. Whitall had a history of traffic offenses and spent time behind bars for driving while disqualified, according to the Australian newspaper.

Whitall, who was driving the 4WD that collided with the Falkholt's auto was an habitual traffic offender with more than 60 convictions to his name.

"He did the best he could and you couldn't ask anymore of him", his son Shane told Seven News.

"He was very private and didn't like people talking about him but the worst part is, he has grandkids that can read, that are listening to it", she said.
