Anne Heche Hospitalized Following Fiery Car Crash

American actress Anne Heche crashed her car into a Los Angeles home on Friday, setting her vehicle and the house on fire.

Jeff Lee, Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer, told the press that Heche was traveling at a high rate of speed when she collided with a house in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles at 10:55 AM on Friday.

“The vehicle was heading east on Preston Way at a high rate of speed, entered the T intersection at Preston Way and Walgrove Ave, ran off the road, and collided with the residence in the 1700 block of Walgrove,” a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson told Deadline.

The impact left the car and the Los Angeles home engulfed in flames, and Heche suffered burn injuries.

“Fifty-nine Firefighters took 65 minutes to access, confine and fully extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure,” said Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics transported Heche to a local hospital in critical condition.
