The Anne Heche Accident Explained, From Fiery Crash To Coma
Lifestyle - News
Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress Anne Heche, best-known for roles in films like "Six Days and Seven Nights" and the soap opera "Another World," is in critical condition following a car crash on August 5, 2022. Heche drove straight into a one-story at an alarming speed in her Mini Cooper, and her car and the house were soon engulfed in flames.
Over 50 firefighters responded to the accident, but Heche was not able to be removed from the scene for 65 minutes. The actress sustained severe burns and, as of August 10, 2022, is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident. In one video of the incident, Heche seems to have an empty bottle of alcohol in her car's cup holder.
In an episode of Heche and Heather Duffy's podcast "Better Together," posted hours before the accident and later removed, the actress drank vodka and wine while she opened up about drinking heavily and experiencing "no good, very bad days." The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating Heche for possible DUI and hit and run charges.
