Anne Heche crashed her car, Friday morning in Los Angeles and is in critical condition. The 53-year-old actress was taken away on a stretcher in photos captured by tabloid TMZ and hospitalized for severe burns. She’s intubated but expected to live, according to the outlet.
The LAPD states that officers responded at an incident in the Mar Vista neighborhood at 10:55am as a vehicle crashed into a residence. Anne was transported to the hospital for treatment by firefighters.
Anne is in critical condition, according to the LAFD.
A witness told the local news station they believe the driver of the car was going around 60 mph and drove through a stop sign in the neighborhood before the crash. Anne was driving a blue Mini Cooper, went through some bushes and into a house, which also caught on fire. The homeowner was inside at the time of the incident, but is OK.
Witnesses stated that Anne first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex in Mar Vista. Residents tried getting her out of the car. She then allegedly put the car in reverse and then sped off, crashing into a nearby home shortly after.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
