Anne Heche actress in coma since fiery car crash
‘At this time, she is in extreme critical condition,’ says Michael McConnell, part of the talent management company representing her.
Anne Heche remained hospitalized in critical condition, comatose, and connected to a breathing machine on August 8th after suffering severe injuries in a fiery Los Angeles car crash.
Kim Heche, 53, has been hospitalized since her car crashed and burst into a fiery inferno in a Westside neighborhood of LA on Friday morning.
There were no human casualties, but the home’s impact set fire to the house, requiring a response by dozens of firefighters.
On Monday, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson said the cause and circumstances of the accident are still under investigation.
Michael McConnell, a representative for the talent management company, told The Hollywood Reporter that Heche is in a coma and has not woken up since the accident.
At this time, she is in critical condition, reported Reuters in a text message. Heche needs ventilation and surgery because of his burns.
A Los Angeles Times article quotes Richard Glass, the owner of a salon in Venice Beach where Charlie attended on Friday morning and purchased a red wig, as saying she was “a sweet little girl.”
Anne Heche made her name as an Emmy-winning daytime television actress on The Next World and went on to star in many following films, including Wag the Dog and Cedar Rapids.
Anne Heche made tabloid headlines in the late 1990s for an affair with comedian Ellen DeGeneres around the time that comedian Ellen DeGeneres came out publicly as a lesbian.
After divorcing Anne Heche, Coleman Laffoon married another woman, while Heche spent some time with a former co-star, James Tupper.
