The Daily Telegraph report that Jessica's life support was turned off earlier today [11 January], with the publication also claiming that 50-year-old Craig Whitall, the driver of the other vehicle involved in the accident, had previously been subject to a nine-year driving ban and had as many as 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.

Former Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt's life support machine has been turned off but she remains in a critical condition, hospital officials have confirmed.

Channel 7 reporter Samantha Brett wrote on Twitter, "Heartbreaking as life support for Jessica Falkholt is turned off a day after her family was farewelled". Annabelle died as a result of her injuries three days after the smash. My deepest condolences to Jessica Falkholt's loved ones.

Falkholt's family were laid to rest after a funeral at St Mary's Catholic Church in Concord on Wednesday.

Her parents were killed on St Stephen's Day when their auto collided with another vehicle.

This could force City to make their move, but Arsenal already have a price tag in mind they will have to reach. The injury to Gabriel Jesus is thought to have had an impact.

It has been revealed Craig - who also died in the fiery collision - had served four jail sentences for traffic offences, was banned for driving for nine years and had at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Vivian Falkholt's brother Paul Ponticello spoke at the funeral service telling mourners the irony of the tragedy was that Mr Falkholt was a careful driver and would often plan out how long a journey would take. Local reports have described Whitall as a "serial traffic offender" who was driving home from a methadone clinic when his auto collided with the Falkholt vehicle.

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.

'I always thought we would grow old together'.

Broadcaster Network Seven said in a statement last month: "Although her time on set was brief, once a part of the Home and Away family, always part of the family".
