Jan 12, 2018


The man who smashed into Home and Away actor Jessica Falkholt’s car on Boxing Day, killing her parents and sister and leaving Jessica in a coma, had a disgraceful driving history with more than 60 convictions to his name.

The Daily Telegraph has revealed that Craig Whitall, 50, who also died in the crash, had previously received four jail sentences for traffic offences, one nine-year driving ban and at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified but was still somehow allowed back behind the wheel.

He was returning from a methadone clinic when he crashed his Toyota Prado into the Falkholt’s family car, the paper reports.

On Friday it was announced that Jessica’s life support had been turned off.
