Anne Heche was hospitalized after a car crash in West Los Angeles
Actress Anne Heche was hospitalized in critical condition on Friday after driving her car into a home on the 1700 block of Walgrove Avenue in West Los Angeles, according to reports from NBC4LA and CNN.
According to several published reports, Heche suffered burn injuries when the Mini Cooper she was driving burst into flames. TMZ broke the news of the accident on Friday with a report that included overhead video of the scene of the accident in the Mar Vista area and a person identified as Heche being taken away in an ambulance. The occupant of the home was not injured in the accident, which caused significant damage to the front of the small home, according to TMZ and CNN.
Heche was also reported to have been involved in an accident at a nearby apartment complex on Walgrove Avenue minutes before the crash. TMZ posted video claiming Heche was speeding down a street in a blue Mini Cooper.
Heche is a television and film veteran who rose to fame in the late 1990s as the romantic partner of Ellen DeGeneres in the months after DeGeneres made international headlines as a mainstream entertainer who came out as a lesbian. After the relationship ended, Heche said that the scrutiny and exposure of her acting career was detrimental.
Heche has remained active in television in recent years. She was expected to attend the Lifetime network’s Television Critics Association press conference next week with a session on opioid crime drama Girl in Room 13, starring Larisa Dias.
The actors’ other credits include 1997’s ‘Donnie Brasco’ and ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ and 1998’s ‘Six Days Seven Nights’. Her regular TV series credits include Fox’s ‘Ally McBeal’, Everwood” by WB Network, “Men in Trees” by ABC and “The Michael J. Fox Show” by NBC.
