Anne Heche was badly burned when her car crashed into a house in Los Angeles, according to reports.
The vehicle, which authorities say is registered in Heche, crashed into a two-story home in the Mar Vista neighborhood and burst into “heavy fire” on Friday, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
Authorities have not officially named Heche as the driver, but TMZ reports that she was driving the Mini Cooper. They also posted a photo of her in the vehicle.
The LAFD says it had 59 firefighters on the scene to contain the blaze and they said one person, who was seriously injured, was rescued and taken to hospital.
Law enforcement officials said The Los Angeles Times that Heche, 53, suffered extensive burns and was “reputed to be under the influence and acting erratically”.
According TMZwitnesses first saw Heche’s car crash into the garage of a building in the neighborhood, before the car slammed into the house on the west side of town.
Video from LA news stations showed the driver of the car being loaded into an ambulance, covered in a white sheet.
Heche appeared in Donnie Brasco, six days seven nights and back to paradise.
