Heche on Friday was taken to a nearby hospital after she crashed her vehicle into a two-story home. The Mini Cooper and the house were both engulfed in flames, and Heche suffered severe burns.
Sources from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) reportedly told TMZ on Thursday afternoon that Heche had her blood tested following the fiery crash. Cocaine was found in her system, as well as fentanyl, though the latter could be from pain medicine administered to Heche by medical professionals in the aftermath of the crash.
Alcohol was not found in her system.
Reps for Heche said on Saturday that the actress was in “stable” condition, but that quickly changed.
“At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition,” a rep for Heche said Monday, according to Deadline. “She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention.”
“She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident,” the statement added.
Heche reportedly crashed into a garage of an apartment complex on Friday before backing up, speeding off, and eventually crashing into the Los Angeles home.
In video obtained by TMZ, Heche’s blue Mini Cooper is seen near the garage, and it seems the actress is speaking to residents of the complex. A male voice repeatedly asks Heche to get out of the car, and the actress responds, “no, sir,” the video suggests.
The vehicle in the video then backs up and speeds off.
Video from a home security camera shows the Mini Cooper moving at high speeds down a street before crashing into the two-story home.
According to a press release from the Los Angeles Fire Department, the “Six Days Seven Nights” actress barreled into a 738 square foot two-story home “causing structural compromise and erupting in heavy fire prior to LAFD arrival.”
It took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to “access, confine and fully extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure, and rescue one female adult found within the vehicle, who has been taken to an area hospital by LAFD Paramedics in critical condition,” the press release added. “No other injuries reported.”
Heche’s condition reportedly remains the same.
