Anne Heche was reportedly involved in a fiery car crash on 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 TMZ and hospitalized for severe burns. She’s intubated but expected to live, according to the outlet.
Yahoo Entertainment reached out to a rep for Heche, but did not immediately receive a response.
The LAPD confirmed to Yahoo that officers responded at an incident in the Mar Vista neighborhood at 10:55 a.m. as a vehicle crashed into a residence. A spokesperson says the driver was transported to the hospital for treatment by firefighters, but did not disclose the person’s identity. The driver is in critical condition.
The DMV confirmed to local news station KTLA the vehicle is registered to the Six Days Seven Nights actress. A witness told the local news station they believe the driver of the car was going around 60mph in the quiet neighborhood before the crash. The vehicle, 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.
TMZ, which broke the news on Friday afternoon, posted a photo of Heche behind the wheel. There is a bottle near her in a cup holder.
