Actor Anne Heche “is not expected to survive” after a fiery car crash last week left her  in a coma, a representative for the family said in a statement released  Thursday. 

Heche’s car crashed Aug. 5 into a home located on the west side of  Los Angeles.  The vehicle erupted into flames and firefighters pulled  Heche, who was alone, from the car. 

According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, around 60  firefighters responded to the scene. The cause of the crash is still  under investigation.

Following the accident, Heche was hospitalized for critical injuries  and slipped into a coma. She suffered a “severe anoxic brain injury,” a  spokeswoman said in the statement. She required mechanical ventilation  and had severe burns.

Heche, 53, is being kept on life support to determine if any of her organs can be donated, according to the spokeswoman.

“Anne had a huge heart and touched everyone she met with her generous  spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness  and joy as her life’s work 

especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love,” the  statement read. “She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and  dearly missed for her light.” 

Images obtained by TMZ appear to show Heche’s car crashing into a  garage and speeding down residential streets. Another image shows what  appears to be a liquor bottle in the vehicle.

Minutes before the crash, salon owner Richard Glass told NewsNation that Heche bought a red wig from him. He described Heche as “coherent and polite” and said nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Heche was involved in the crash roughly 21 minutes later.

In her acting career, Heche played in movies with stars including  Harrison Ford in “Six Days, Seven Nights” and Johnny Depp in “Donnie  Brasco.” 

The Ohio native first came on the Hollywood scene when she appeared in the NBC soap opera “Another World” from 1987 to 1991.

More recently, Heche acted on Broadway and in smaller films and TV  shows such as “Chicago P.D.” and “All Rise.” In 2020, she competed on  “Dancing With the Stars.”
