Jessica's parents died at the scene and her sister's life support was turned off three days after the two-car collision.

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

Home And Away actress Jessica Falkholt is said to still be in a critical condition despite being taken off life support.

Her parents and younger sister - whom Falkholt was in the vehicle with - each died as a result of the accident, as did the other car's driver, Craig Whitall. Whitehall had previously received a nine-year driving ban and racked up at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.

As Jessica fought for life in the Intensive Care Unit at St George Hospital, her family had been by her side and it is being reported she was surrounded by her loved ones when the decision was made to switch off the life support. He also spoke of his anger and confusion over his family members' tragic ends, saying that "their lives on this earth ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense".

Whitall was reportedly travelling home from a Nowra methadone clinic when the crash happened. The soap opera shared a tribute to Falkholt on Thursday.

"Lars, Vivian and Annabelle will be deeply missed by Vivian's brother Paul, his children along with many relatives and friends both near and far", a notice for the service read, according to The Daily Telegraph.

"The irony of this tragedy is that Lars was such a careful driver".

A family friend said, "They were a very close family and had been on a quiet getaway", according to The Telegraph as reported by Sydney Morning Herald. We'd always have a laugh.

"We take a little comfort in knowing they will be together". You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever. She had just completed filming for the title role in "Harmony", scheduled for a 2018 theatrical release.
