Is Anne Heche OK? Ellen DeGeneres' ex-GF in ICU after suffering 'serious burns' in LA car crash
Actress-director Anne Heche was involved in an ugly crash that left her with serious burns, as per reports. According to multiple reports, Heche crashed her car into a house causing a fire, suffering multiple burns and eventually being taken away to a hospital. Witnesses reveal that before the main accident, she crashed her car into a garage and took off only to end up herself in a life-threatening accident.
The 53-year-old actress was driving her Mini Cooper before she rammed it into a house in Mar Vista, California, on Friday, August 5, at around 11 am. TMZ reports that she first crashed her car into the garage of a house. But before witnesses could help her, she put her blue Mini Cooper in reverse, and took off only to be taken away to the hospital moments later. The massive fire left Ellen DeGeneres' ex-girlfriend with severe burns, so much so that she had to be taken away on a stretcher. As per the publication, the severity of the burns is hindering the doctors from checking whether she was under the influence of alcohol. However, a photo obtained by the publication shows Heche in her car with a red-capped bottle in one of the cupholders hinting toward traces of alcohol before and while driving. The Hollywood talent was saved and admitted into an LA hospital.
