Actor Anne Heche rushed to hospital after car crash
She is said to be recovering well.
Actor Anne Heche is said to be in stable condition after suffering injuries in a car crash over the weekend.
Heche, known for her roles in Donnie Brasco and Men in Trees, drove her car into a Los Angeles home, causing severe burn injuries to herself.
Los Angeles police department (LAPD) said it was investigating the incident but had not determined its cause.
The home in which Heche crashed into is said to now be uninhabitable as the blaze caused by the collision took 59 firefighters to extinguish.
In a statement Heather Duffy Boylston, Heche’s friend and podcast partner, said:
“Anne is currently in stable condition. Her family and friends ask for your thoughts and prayers and to respect her privacy during this difficult time.”
In another statement Heche's ex-partner Thomas Jane said;
"While Anne and I are no longer an item, today's tragic news was devastating to me and to all who love her.
My heart goes out to Anne and her two sons. My thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation. Thank God no one else was hurt."
Witnesses of the crash say that Heche's car went all the way through the house and that first responders were not able to remove Heche from her car until the blaze was almost completely extinguished.
"[The car] went all the way through the house to the back of the house.
The windows were broken, so I opened the back door of the car.
She finally answered and said she was not okay, so that was tough.
I know they didn't get her out of the car until the fire was pretty much put out."
Investigations into the cause of the crash is still ongoing.
