Anne Heche ‘not expected to survive’ after car crash into Mar Vista, California home, rep says; organ donation under evaluation

LOS ANGELES — Anne Heche suffered a serious brain injury in her car accident last week and is unlikely to survive, a representative of the actress’ family said Thursday.

Heche is being kept on life support in a coma as organ donation is being considered as an option, her spokesman said.

The statement, issued on behalf of Heche’s family and friends, read:

“We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and to thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses who took care of Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital.

Unfortunately, as a result of her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and is in a critically comatose state. She is not expected to survive.

It has long been her decision to donate her organs and she is being kept alive to see if any are viable.

Anne had a big heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw it as her life’s work to spread kindness and joy – particularly to move the needle, to accept who you love. She will be remembered for her brave honesty and will be greatly missed for her light.”

Heche crashed her car last week, apparently driving at high speed, before losing control and crashing through the walls of a home in Los Angeles’ Mar Vista neighborhood, setting the car and home on fire. A woman inside and her pets escaped serious injury, but her home sustained serious damage.

Shortly after the crash, Heche went into a coma and was listed in critical condition.

Police later tested her blood and determined she was likely under the influence of a controlled substance while behind the wheel.
