The life support of Home & Away star Jessica Falkholt has been switched off two weeks after her family was involved in a horrific Boxing Day car crash which also claimed the lives of her parents and sister.
The 29-year-old had her life support switched off one day after the joint funeral for her sister Annabelle, 21, and parents Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The other driver involved in the crash, Craig Whitall, also passed away at the scene after reportedly driving home from a methadone clinic.
It is not illegal to drive with methadone in your system but if a substance is proven to have impaired someone's driving, they can be charged.
An autopsy may fail to determine if any drugs were in Mr Whitall's system due to his severe injuries and subsequent fire.
Jessica's parents died at the scene and her sister's life support was turned off three days after the two-car collision.
The actress had been in critical condition since the accident after sustaining severe head injuries and placed in an induced coma.
Her family's funeral was held in Concord yesterday with hundreds of friends and family paying their respects.
"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.
Paul Ponticello, Vivian's brother, gave a eulogy at the funeral. "Their lives ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense," he said, reported by The Sydney Morning Herald.
