Report: Anne Heche in hospital, stable after fiery crash

Anne Heche was hospitalized on Saturday following an accident in which her car crashed into a house and a fire broke out, a rep for the actor told People magazine.

The representative, who has not been identified, told the magazine that Heche was in a stable condition a day after Friday’s crash. Her family and friends have asked that her privacy be respected, People reported.

Los Angeles police officer Tony Im said her speeding vehicle came to a T-intersection and sped off the road and into a home in the Mar Vista neighborhood of west Los Angeles just before 11 a.m. Friday.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said the vehicle stopped inside the two-story home and started a fire that took nearly 60 firefighters more than an hour to extinguish. Officials did not identify Heche as the driver who was towed from the vehicle while it was inside the home, but said it was registered to her.

Television news video shows a blue Mini Cooper Clubman, badly damaged and burned, being pulled from the house, with a blonde woman sitting on a stretcher and struggling as firefighters put her in the ambulance.

No other injuries were reported, and no arrests were made. Police detectives are investigating.

Her rep did not immediately respond on Saturday to request for comment.

A native of Ohio, Heche first rose to fame on the NBC soap opera “Another World” from 1987 to 1991. She won a Daytime Emmy Award for the role.

In the late 1990s, she became one of the hottest actors in Hollywood, consistently appearing on magazine covers and in big-budget movies. She co-starred with Johnny Depp in 1997’s “Donnie Brasco”; with Tommy Lee Jones in 1997’s “Volcano”; with Harrison Ford in the 1998 film “Six Days, Seven Nights”; with Vince Vaughn and Joaquin Phoenix in 1998’s “Return to Paradise” and with the cast of the 1997 original “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

Her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000 enhanced her reputation and brought public scrutiny.

In the fall of 2000, shortly after the couple broke up, Heche was hospitalized after knocking on a stranger’s door in the countryside near Fresno, California. Authorities said she appeared shaky and disoriented, and spoke incoherently to residents.

In a memoir released the following year, “Call Me Crazy,” Heche told of her lifelong struggles with mental health and an abusive childhood.

She was married to camera operator Coleman Laffoon from 2001 to 2009. The two have a son together. She has another son in a relationship with actor James Tupper, her co-star in the TV series “Men In Trees”.

Heche has worked consistently in smaller films, on Broadway, and on television shows over the past two decades. She recently had recurring roles on the web series “Chicago PD” and “All Rise,” and in 2020 is a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars.”
