Home And Away's Jessica Falkholt fights for her life as crash claims parents

By Jacob Stolworthy

Former Home And Away star Jessica Falkholt is fighting for life after a head-on collision in Australia in which three people died including both of her parents.

The actress (29) was in a critical condition yesterday alongside her sister Annabelle (21) after the Boxing Day collision.

A 50-year-old man driving another vehicle was also killed.

Police say one car had been on the wrong side of the road.

According to ABC News, onlookers immediately rushed to free the passengers on the Princes Highway at Mondayong in New South Wales.

Falkholt appeared in the long-running soap as Hope Morrison in 2016.

Following the tragedy, NSW police have issued a warning to drivers about "fatigue and complacency" with the state's road accident fatality toll rising to 873 for 2017 - up 12 from the same time last year.
