Anne Heche Still In Coma After Brutal Car Crash
After TMZ broke news of actress Anne Heche and her car crash, now word is that the starlet has fallen into a coma. As per Reuters, she remains in an ‘extreme critical condition’.
Earlier on Monday, there was news of the Hollywood starlet crashing her car into a Los Angeles home. This caused both her vehicle and the home to erupt into flames.
Now one of her representatives made a statement about her health. Michael McConnell told Reuters that;
“She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention, … She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”
According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, around 10:55 a.m. on Friday, a car crashed into a home in the Mar Vista neighborhood, causing a ‘heavy fire’. Without revealing the identity of the driver, they stated that a female was pulled from the vehicle, a Mini Cooper, and transported to a hospital. It took 59 firefighters and 65 minutes to extinguish the blaze, which caused major damage.
CNN reported that a woman was inside the home at the time but was not injured when the crash set the home ablaze. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for the woman, who ‘lost her entire lifetime of possessions’, according to the fundraiser statement.
Officer Norma Eisenman, a spokeswoman, revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the circumstances of the crash, including the possibility that Anne Heche may have been driving under the influence. A warrant for the actress’s blood was obtained the day of the incident, Eisenman said.
Anne Heche dated Ellen DeGeneres for 3 and a half years beginning in the late 1990s. Her relationship attracted intense public attention.
