The life support of Home and Away actor Jessica Falkholt has been switched off at a hospital in Australia following a Boxing Day crash that killed three members of her close family. The neurosurgeon came in and he just said the operation went well and it's just a waiting game.

The family is now playing a "waiting game" on the condition of the actress, with doctors telling them it could be weeks or months before her recovery time is known.

She had reportedly undergone several surgeries, including the removal of a kidney and part of her skull, but remained in a coma since the accident.

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

News.com.au report that Mr. Ponticello told the service: "The irony of the tragedy is that Lars was such a careful driver".

Ponticello also spoke about the love between Swedish-born Lars and Italian-born Vivian, saying they were inseparable and the tragic end "makes absolutely no sense".

"Speaking about the accident, Jessica's uncle, Paul Ponticello, said: "[It's] a day that will be hard to erase from our memory", adding that Lars was known for being an excellent driver.

Whithall - the driver of the second vehicle - is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road at the time of the crash.

"They are together and always will be", he said. You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever. 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.

The other driver was Craig Anthony Whitall, a serial driving offender, who was also killed in the smash.

Coroners will now try and determine whether Whitall's drug use caused the crash.
