The 29-year-old and her 21-year-old sister Annabelle were pulled unconscious from the wreckage of the crash, which occurred on the coast of New South Wales.

Her parents were killed on St Stephen's Day when their auto collided with another vehicle. Annabelle died in hospital three days later.

There has been no official confirmation from the NSW Police or hospital that the actress has died.

Australian media are describing the driver of the other vehicle as a "serial traffic offender" who was driving back from a methadone clinic when he collided with the Falkholts' auto. He had previously been subject to a nine-year driving ban and had at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.

Jessica's life support was turned off on Thursday night, media reports, a day after her family was farewelled at a funeral at St Mary's Catholic Church in Concord. It's believed he was driving home from the methadone clinic with an investigation taking place on whether he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash.

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

'The irony of this tragedy is Lars was such a careful driver, ' Mr Ponticello said. "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".

He also spoke about the love between his sister and brother-in-law: "They are together and always will be". You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever.

Hero motorists described how they pulled Jessica, who played Hope Morrison in the TV soap, and Annabelle from the wreckage as the vehicles were engulfed in flames.
