Anne Heche in critical condition


The trick is not minding
Reports are that a car, driven by Heche herself, apparently crashed into her house at high speed. The car and house erupted in flames.

Stay tuned for more details.

Luckily no one else was hurt. I hope she pulls thru. She's driven over a lot of bumpy roads in her life. I'm not a big fan of her movies or TV shows but I thought she was adorable opposite Harrison Ford in the 1998 film Six Days Seven Nights.

Any news? I haven't seen anything new in the last 12 hours . . .

Just saw this on the news and I hope she's ok. I've always liked her and hopefully the cause is not something criminal. Like PumaMan said, I've heard that she's had her fair share of difficulties.

The trick is not minding
Heche is expected to pull through, but itís said she has suffered severe burns and has a long a road to recovery ahead of her.

More information has come in, some conflicting. The first piece of news is she was allegedly was involved in an accident and fled the scene, then preceded to crash.

The second is conflicting. Iíve read some reports that state it was her house, others that state it was someone elseís house.

Looks like she may have been speeding right before she crashed into a house (not her house).

From CNN:

The vehicle was traveling at high speed when it ran off the road and collided with a residence, Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer Jeff Lee told CNN on Friday.

Latest updates is she is currently comatose.
Yes. Apparently the reports that she was upgraded to stable condition were incorrect.


"Over the weekend a representative stated that Anne was in stable condition but that information was inaccurate. She has always remained in critical condition, slipping into a coma following the accident," a spokesperson for Heche told CNN in a statement Monday. "She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is currently being treated at the Grossman Burn Center."

I was immediately curious about what kind of mental condition was she in to impact one building, to back away from that, speed off and then crash into the house.

At first I thought she was having a nervous breakdown, or had "gone around the bend", but with all the reports of vodka drinking and possibly being bombed earlier that day before she got into the car, I suppose she was just blasted drunk. She may have tried to flee the first impact, then was too drunk to control the car until she crashed.

Just saw this on Fox news:

Ann Heche is not expected to survive . . .

Anne Heche remains in a coma after suffering a "severe" brain injury and is "not expected to survive," a representative for the actress told Fox News Digital Thursday evening.

The rep added that Hecheís wish had always been to be an organ donor and "she's being kept on life support to determine if any are viable."

RIP Miss Heche.

They say she suffered an anoxic brain injury which is a lack of oxygen to the brain. That might explain her sitting up out of the stretcher before they load her into the ambulance. Which casts that video in an entirely different light. So I'm just going to go ahead and delete it.

I feel terrible that she apparently went through so much pain at the end...if there's anybody in this business who deserved to go peacefully, it was her. RIP.
