Actress Anne Heche dies after vehicle crash into house on South Walgrove Avenue in Mar Vista, California
KABC in Los Angeles reported that California Department of Motor Vehicle records and police sources confirmed that the vehicle involved in the crash, a Mini Cooper, is registered to a driver named Anne Heche.
According to authorities, a driver struck the two-story home, comprising the structure that eventually erupted into flames.
Reports say Anne Heche crashed her car into a house in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles on Friday, setting both the vehicle and the house on fire.
Heche’s speeding car came to a T-shaped intersection and ran off the road and into the house in the Mar Vista section of Los Angeles’ westside shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, Los Angeles police Officer Tony Im said.
"Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive," her representative Holly Baird said in a statement.
One week after a bizarre crash into a Mar Vista home, Anne Heche was declared brain dead at Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center, the family announced Friday, although the actress was kept on life support so her organs could be harvested for donation.
