Report: Anne Heche hospitalized after car crash into L.A. home

Anne Heche, the Emmy-nominated actress best known for “Gracie’s Choice” and “Vanished,” was reportedly hospitalized after her car crashed and set a house on fire in Mar Vista on Friday.

The Los Angeles Fire Department reported a car accident in the 1700 block of South Walgrove Avenue before 11 a.m. on Friday. A post on the fire department’s official Twitter account said one seriously injured person was rescued and taken to hospital. 59 firefighters arrived on the scene and it took 65 minutes to fully contain and extinguish the blaze, the Twitter report said.

LAFD said on its website that an “adult female found in the vehicle” was taken to a nearby “hospital by LAFD paramedics in critical condition.” No other injuries were reported.

The department did not identify Heche as the driver, but TMZ first reported that witnesses saw Heche driving a blue Mini Cooper in her neighborhood. Using video and photos from the scene, the website said Heche first crashed into an apartment building garage.

Before residents could help Heche out of her car, she backed up and drove away, according to TMZ. Shortly thereafter, Heche reportedly fell into a nearby home and started a fire in Mar Vista, a west LA neighborhood.

A photo posted by TMZ showed Heche in the driver’s seat of the Mini Cooper, and video showed the driver being rescued from the accident and wheeled into an ambulance. In the video, the injured driver was covered with a white sheet on a stretcher.

A representative for Heche declined to comment when reached by The Times Friday.
