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 auto crash which also claimed the lives of her parents and sister.

Meanwhile, back at the hospital where Jessica was still in coma, friends and family surrounded Jessica from her hospital bed during and after the funeral, saying it was important she had support.

The Daily Telegraph reported that a decision had been made to switch off her life support.

The revelations come as former Home and Away actress remains in a critical condition at St George Hospital after her life support was turned off.

Annabelle died in hospital three days later, and Jessica had remained in a coma following several surgeries.

On its website, the show said: "Goodbye lovely Jess".

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

At the funeral for Lars, Vivian and Annabelle, held Thursday, Vivian's brother Paul thanked emergency services and the bystanders who rushed to help.

Our thoughts are with the Falkholt's family and friends at this hard time.

Whitall was driving home from a methadone clinic when his Toyota SUV allegedly crossed into the path of the vehicle carrying the Falkholts.

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

Jessica found fame after appearing as Hope Morrison on Home and Away in 2016, also starring in upcoming supernatural thriller Harmony, which is due for release in 2018. "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'd always have a laugh.

"Everything that the community expects us to do to keep them safe has not worked in this instance that's, to be brutally honest and frank, the situation we're all facing", she told 2GB Radio on Friday. She then filmed a role in the USA film Harmony, which is set for release this year.
