Jessica has been in St George Hospital, Sydney, with serious injuries since the horrific car accident on Boxing Day 2017 which claimed the lives of her parents, father Lars, 69, mother Vivian, 60, and younger sister Annabelle, 21.

Annabelle died in hospital days after the accident, after her parents were killed instantly in the tragic crash.

The driver of the other vehicle involved also lost his life on Princes Highway.

Jessica was surrounded by her loved ones when her life support machine was switched off one day after the funeral of her family members.

Days after the traumatic incident, Lisa Elmas – who was first on the scene of the crash – opened up about the day that she saw four people lose their lives.

Having been only minutes behind their car, she revealed the extent she went to to try and save as many people as she could.

“No one was doing anything yet, so I yelled for help and asked who had fire extinguishers to put out the flames,” she said to the Illawarra Mercury.

“I put them out and went straight over to Craig, I stayed with him until he passed.”

She said that Jessica’s father died on impact, and her mother shortly after.

Lisa described the moment as “going into autopilot”, admitting she tried her best to pull Jessica’s mother’s body out of the car but struggled to battle the flames.
