Publicly available information suggests that Anne Heche “is not expected to survive” after sustaining severe injuries in a car accident last week.
A representative for the actress told People that she had sustained a “significant” brain injury.
According to the representative, Heche is still in a coma and is very unlikely to recover.
She has always wanted to be an organ donor, so her family is keeping her on life support while they try to determine if any of her organs are usable.
On August 5, Heche crashed her car into a house in Los Angeles while under the influence of cocaine, according to reports.
TMZ claims that fentanyl was also detected in the tests. Police aren’t sure if the opioid, which is commonly used as a painkiller, contributed to the crash.
The actress from “Donnie Brasco” was speeding around the neighborhood in a blue Mini Cooper before the accident happened.
Heche had previously hit a nearby apartment building before crashing into the home. Video footage revealed fans rushing to Heche’s car to meet her. However, she quickly threw into reverse and fled the area.
Heche was rescued from the burning car by firefighters who arrived minutes later to put out a house fire.
We were all staring at each other, wondering how on earth they made it through. Lynn Bernstein, a witness, explained the difficulty of breathing outside the house after the crash to People magazine.
At a nearby hospital, Heche was intubated and has been in a coma ever since. The situation is “dire,” according to a TMZ report from Thursday.
Even though no one else was hurt in the accident, Lynne Mishele’s neighbors still decided to start a GoFundMe page for her.
The fundraiser expresses extreme gratitude by saying, “Lynne and her family very narrowly escaped physical harm.” “Unfortunately, the home was completely burned — it took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to extinguish the flames — and was immediately red-tagged by the LAFD, forcing Lynne to abandon the place she loves.”
Jennifer Durand, the homeowner, was taken aback by the level of destruction.
We had a lot of hugs and tears when I got there. I was so relieved and thankful at that moment that she and her animals had made it through,” Durand recalled. “I was completely unprepared for the appearance of the house.”
