Anne Heche is a well-known and beloved Hollywood actress who during her long career has played many important roles for both cinema and television. We remember her above all for having played the role of Maggie Pistone in Donnie Brasco, but its fame is mainly due to the soap opera Another World. Furthermore she was one of the stars of the iconic 90s slasher film I Know What You Did Last Summer which also inspired the Prime Video tv series of the same name. Anne Heche in recent years he had acted in some shows such as The Brave, a TV series that unfortunately ended up in oblivion and in the film 13 minutes.
Unfortunately Anne Heche was involved in a terrible accident and is now hospitalized in serious condition.
According to CNN and the TMZ site, The actress was driving a high-speed blue Mini Cooper in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles, California on Friday, August 6 when she went off the road and crashed into a house.. The impact caused the car to catch fire, and the Los Angeles firefighters took over an hour to reach the vehicle and suffocate the flames. At that point the woman was immediately transported to the hospital and hospitalized. Early sources report that Anne Heche’s conditions would be very serious, also because the actress suffered numerous burns. We read this in fact in a statement by Brian Humphreyone of the Los Angeles firefighters:
“It took fifty-nine firefighters 65 minutes to successfully reach, confine and completely extinguish the stubborn flames within the severely damaged facility. An adult woman [è stata] found inside the vehicle, who was taken to a hospital in the area by LAFD paramedics in critical condition. “
The Los Angeles Fire Department also confirmed that the occupant of the house who was hit by the car was unharmed, but sadly the crash and subsequent fire made the house uninhabitable, as the vehicle broke through the side wall of the house. A witness told the Daily Mail what he saw on Friday morning, when he tried to help both the resident of the damaged house and the driver of the car:
“Before approaching the car, I saw the inhabitant of the house barefoot in the rubble. He was in shock and he frantically asked me to help her get his pets out of the house. […] I walked over to the car and tried to speak [ad Anne Heche] a couple of times asking her if she was okay, but she didn’t answer, so I had to approach her. I managed to open the rear door of the car and crawl halfway inside. This time, when I asked her if she was okay, she said no. ‘“
We hope that this bad story will end well and that some good news may soon arrive from the hospital.
