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.

"St George Hospital has been asked to advise.that Jessica's life support has been switched off".

The tragic conclusion to the horror story comes after friends and family refused to give up hope for her recovery.

Jessica's life support was reportedly turned off on Thursday night, a day after her family was farewelled at a funeral at St Mary's Catholic church in Concord. Australian media are describing the driver of the other vehicle as a "serial traffic offender" who was driving back from a methadone clinic when he collided with the Falkholts' auto.

There are unconfirmed reports he was on his way home from a methadone clinic in Nowra when the crash occurred.

Ro Nay San Lwin, a Rohingya activist, said he did not believe the army's account of the incident. Robertson warned that the admission it did not represent a change of heart from the military.

At the time of the accident, Network Seven, Home and Away's broadcaster, released a statement saying: "Although her time on set was brief, once a part of the Home and Away family, always part of the family". Annabelle died in hospital three days later.

According to The Telegraph, Whitall's driving record includes four jail sentences for traffic offenses, a nine-year driving ban, and "at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified".

There are mixed reports about whether the actress has passed away, with The Home and Away Facebook page sharing a simple heartfelt update last night, "Rest in peace lovely Jess".

Vivian Falkholt's younger brother, Paul Ponticello, said that they could take a small bit of comfort in knowing that they will all be together.

The driver at the centre of a fatal vehicle crash, which tore the Falkholt family apart, had been jailed four times and had over 60 serious traffic convictions to his name.
