Hollywood star Anne Heche was involved in two crashes in Los Angeles Friday. She has been rushed to the hospital with severe burns according to multiple media reports.
Witnesses told TMZ that she was driving a blue Mini Cooper, crashed into the garage of an apartment complex, the residents tried to get her out of her car for her safety and the community, she jammed the car into reverse and sped away, only to hit a house a bit later igniting the car and the home in flames.
According to TMZ: “The fire was significant and engulfed the house. Anne apparently suffered severe burns in the fire you see her clothes are charred as she’s taken away on a stretcher.
“She’s covered in a white cloth when she suddenly sits up on the stretcher and starts flailing wildly as they put her in the ambulance.
“We do not know the extent of her injuries or burns.
“We’re told she’s currently in the hospital intubated but expected to live.”
LAFD says the driver was rescued and taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Images from SkyFOX appear to show Heche trying to get out of the gurney she was placed in.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said the vehicle came to rest within a 738- square-foot two-story home, built in 1952, causing structural compromise and erupting in heavy fire.
