The sisters were injured in a horrific Boxing Day crash which killed their parents

Television actor Jessica Falkholt and her sister Annabelle are fighting for their lives after the Princes Highway crash that tragically killed their parents and another person.

The head-on Boxing Day crash near Ulladulla left three people dead after a four-wheel-drive crossed the road and collided with a vehicle carrying the Falkholt family, police believe.

The actress is now in St George Hospital and her sister is in Liverpool Hospital, both of them are in a critical condition.

Falkholt is an actor on Home and Away.

Jessica is credited with roles on Underbelly: Badness, a number of prominent stage plays and most recently Home and Away.

NSW Police Chief Inspector Phil Brooks said 11 fatalities occurred after vehicles veered off the road.

The south coast crash has brought the death toll to 21 since December 15, which marked the start of Operation Safe Arrival, the state's Christmas and New Year road safety campaign.

A 25-year-old woman hit a tree when her SUV left the road near Taree, and a 23-year-old female passenger was killed when she fell out of a Jeep and hit a road sign at Peak Hill, north of Parkes.

Relatives have rushed to the bedsides of two sisters critically injured in a fiery crash on the NSW south coast after their parents died in a burning auto.

Chief Inspector Brooks said the cause of the crashes was "primarily complacency".

"There are more cars on our roads and sadly, personal responsibility is lacking many road users".
