Australian actress Jessica Falkholt died on Wednesday, a hospital confirmed

Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt has died from injuries she suffered in a car crash three weeks ago, an Australian hospital has confirmed.

The accident, which happened in New South Wales on 26 December, killed her parents, sister and the other driver.

The actress, 29, played Hope Morrison in the soap. Her life support was switched off last week.

Falkholt died on Wednesday morning local time, said St George Hospital, in a statement requested by her family.

“The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time,” the statement said.

The decision to end her life support came after a funeral service was held for family.

Jessica’s parents Lars and Vivian were killed instantly in the crash and her sister Annabelle died in hospital three days later.

Australian police are still investigating the crash, which also killed 50-year-old Craig Whittall, who was driving the other car.

Falkholt’s stint on the long-running series only lasted for 16 episodes and ended in November 2016. She then filmed a role in the US film Harmony, which is set for release this year.
