  • Tragic'Heartbreaking news about Jessica Falkholt. There are no words' one fan tweeted

The devastating crash killed her sister Annabelle, 21, and parents Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60, along with Whitall.

Ms Falkholt and her sister Annabelle were pulled from the crash, as the vehicles went up in flames, but her parents died in the burning auto, along with the 4WD's driver. Her sister, Annabelle, 21, passed away on December 29 as a result of her injuries and was buried with their parents on Wednesday.

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

The Falkholt's family auto was hit by a four-wheel drive on Boxing Day, with the sisters pulled from the wreckage before it erupted in flames with the bodies of their parents inside.

The auto which collided with Jessica's family's vehicle was being driven by Craig Anthony Whitall, 50, a serial driving offender.

It has been revealed that the killer driver Craig Whitall had been declared an habitual traffic offender by the courts with more than 60 convictions to his name.

A funeral notice for the ceremony at St Mary's Catholic Church in Concord described the Falkholt family as a "dearly loved and cherished father, mother and sister to Jessica".

The family was remembered as an inseparable, radiant group.


Vivian's brother Paul Ponticello told the service (via Australia's Daily Telegraph) that he "always thought we would grow old together".

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

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

Jessica lost her entire immediate family in the crash. "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 Anthony Whitall, 50, who was driving a four-wheel-drive crashed into the Falkholt's family auto. We'd always have a laugh.

"They are together and always will be", he said.

"Rest in Peace Jess, you will be missed so very much". She had just completed filming for the title role in "Harmony", scheduled for a 2018 theatrical release.
