- Anne Heche was rushed to the hospital and is still there as of today after the automobile she was driving collided with a house in Los Angeles on Friday and caught fire.
- Heche’s romantic relationship with Ellen DeGeneres in the late 1990s garnered a lot of public exposure, much to her professional dismay.
After a car she was operating collided with a home in Los Angeles on Friday and caught fire, Anne Heche was taken to the hospital and is still there today. She is currently receiving intensive care.
“ICU patient Anne is fortunate to be alive. She will need a lot of time to recuperate from her severe burns. Her team and family are still processing the aftermath of the tragedy, “Heche’s close friend told CNN on Saturday morning.
Jeff Lee, Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer, told CNN on Friday that the car was moving at high speed when it went off the road and struck a house.
Heche was taken in serious condition by paramedics from the Los Angeles Fire Department to a neighboring hospital. For more than an hr, as per the LAFD, firefighters had to “access, confine and extinguish the stubborn fires within the badly damaged structure.”
There were no other recorded injuries.
CNN has contacted Heche’s reps for comment.
A law enforcement source with knowledge of the inquiry told CNN on Saturday that investigators had not yet questioned Heche about the specifics of the event.
An LAPD spokeswoman told CNN on Saturday night that the department is looking into both the collision and a previous “misdemeanour hit and run” incident.
No arrests, according to LAPD.
Heche was still in the hospital as of Saturday night, and the law enforcement source noted that officers were unable to speak with her due to the sincerity of her injuries.
Heche’s dual roles as twins Vicky Hudson as well as Marley Love on the soap opera “Another World,” where she played from 1987 to 1991 and earned a Daytime Emmy, are what first made her famous. She then made appearances in the films “Donnie Brasco,” “Six Days Seven Nights,” and “Wag the Dog.”
To Heche’s professional chagrin, her romantic involvement with Ellen DeGeneres in the late 1990s attracted much media attention. During a 2021 interview with Page Six, Heche said she felt “blacklisted” due to their relationship becoming public.
Heche claims that she lasted ten years without working on a studio film. Heche and also DeGeneres dated from 1997 to 2000.
The Brave, Quantico, and Chicago P.D. are just a few recent TV shows in which Heche has made guest appearances. According to her IMDB profile, she is working on several acting projects.
