Hollywood star Anne Heche in a coma after LA car crash | BreakingNews latest
The 53-year-old was taken to hospital following the incident on Friday morning.
US actress Anne Heche is in a coma and has not regained consciousness following a collision that left her vehicle “engulfed in flames,” a representative has confirmed.
Heche (53) was taken to hospital following the incident on Friday morning in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles and remains in a critical condition.
She is the former partner of US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres – the pair began dating in 1997 before separating in 2000 – and is known for films including Donnie Brasco, Cedar Rapids and the 1998 Psycho remake.
“Previous reports stating that Anne Heche was stable were inaccurate,” a spokesperson told the PA news agency.
“Shortly after the accident, Anne became unconscious, slipping into a coma and is in critical condition.
“She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention.”
