Actress Anne Heche, 53, is in the hospital in critical condition after apparently crashing her car into a Los Angeles home on Friday, causing a fire that burned her and destroyed the vehicle and home, according to Fox News.
Heche was reportedly under the influence and acting erratically while driving her blue Mini Cooper in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles late Friday morning, according to police.
She first crashed into the parking garage of an apartment building causing minor damage before continuing to drive and crashing into the home.
She was removed from the car by paramedics and taken to the hospital, covered by a white sheet. When she got to the ambulance, however, witnesses report that she sat up on the gurney and flailed around.
The vehicle and house fire required 59 firefighters and took more than an hour to extingush. The one-story home is reportedly destroyed.
Heche is an Emmy-winning actress who started her career on the soap Another World playing estranged twins, but went on to roles in a number of movies and TV series.
Her films include Six Days, Seven Nights with Harrison Ford, Donnie Brasco, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and The Brave.
TV shows include Nip/Tuck, Everwood, Ally McBeal, Chicago P.D., and All Rise.
Heche was involved in the development of several upcoming projects, including Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, horror-thriller Full Ride, and a recurrence of All Rise on OWN.
Heche was previously involved in a relationship with Ellen DeGeneres from 2016 to 2000. She then married James Tupper, but the two divorced in 2018.
She has an adult son, Homer, from a previous relationship, and a teen son, Atlas, with Tupper.
Through the years, Heche has made strange comments that have led many to question her mental health. She told an interviewer once that she had an alter ego, “Celestia,” and once claimed that she was meeting a spaceship.
