The sister of Home And Away actress Jessica Falkholt has died, three days after a car crash that killed both their parents.
Annabelle Falkholt, 21, had been airlifted to hospital after their car was hit by another vehicle on Boxing Day as they headed home from a family holiday on the Prince’s Highway near Ulladulla, New South Wales.
Jessica, 28, is fighting for her life after she was pulled from the car moments before it burst into flames.
The women’s parents, Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60, are reported to have died instantly.
Annabelle’s boyfriend Jordan Brohier wrote on Facebook: “Today I lost the love of my life Annabelle. I’ve never met such a kind, gentle soul and this world is at such a loss without this beautiful angel.”
He added: “My prayers are with darling Jess and I hope she can pull through.”
The driver of the second vehicle – a Toyota Prado four-wheel drive – has been named as 51-year-old Craig Anthony Whitall.
He is also believed to have died instantly after his car was apparently unable to make it around a sweeping bend and it veered across the lanes and into the Falkholts’ path.
Mr Whitall was on his way home from a visit to a methadone clinic, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Witnesses have claimed his car drifted on to the wrong side of the road on two occasions before the crash.
His son Shane Whitall wrote on Facebook: “I love you with all my heart dad and will forever miss you you were my hero I don’t give a f*** what anyone says you showed me alot in my life more than youl ever know its such a tragedy to loose you I LOVE YOU DAD RIP.”
Jessica played Hope Morrison in Home and Away and was set to star in a new thriller series on Australian television. Her first movie Harmony is due for release in 2018.
