Jessica Falkholt had been in a coma since a car crash on Boxing Day

The Dec. 26, 2017, crash occurred on the New South Wales Coast near Sydney, Australia, and was allegedly caused by a "serial traffic offender" with more than 60 convictions on his record, according to Metro. She passed away surrounded by loved ones who have refused to leave her side since the devastating incident.

Annabelle was transported to Liverpool Hospital, where she died three days later.

Jessica underwent a number of surgeries, including having one of her kidneys and part of her skull removed, but remained in a coma.

Vivian and Lars were tragically killed instantly in the crash, while Jessica and Annabelle were pulled form the vehicle by bystanders.

On the evening of Thursday, Jan. 11, just one day after a funeral had been held for Falkholt's parents and sister, her family agreed to switch off the life support.

"We made sure Jess wasn't alone and her friends were able to be there with her, ' a relative said". No decision is made without Jessica's wants in mind.




'It is a day that will be hard to erase from our memory, ' Paul Ponticello said.

Paul Ponticello, brother to Vivian and uncle to Jessica, said he "always thought we would grow old together".

'Their lives on this earth ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense'. "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".

Police continue to investigate the crash, which also claimed the life of 50-year-old Craig Whitall, who was driving the other auto and died instantly. You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever.

Falkholt played Hope Morrison on the popular soap opera Home and Away, and the show paid tribute to her on Twitter with a simple message: "Rest in peace, lovely Jessica Falkholt". He was driving home from a methadone clinic when he struck the family of four.
