The car that Heche was driving was dragged away from the Mar Vista house where it had crashed and caught fire.
According to the police, the automobile drove 30 feet into the house. The collision happened in Mar Vista’s 1700 block of South Walgrove Avenue at around 11 a.m.
Using a video of the car, CBS2 reporter Rachel Kim tweeted on Friday night, “Here’s the now-mangled automobile owned by actress Anne Heche being taken away after speeding and smashing into a Mar Vista home and igniting a fire.”
Heche’s automobile reportedly “exploded” on collision as she was traveling at 90 mph, according to The Daily Mail. It may have taken 30 minutes to liberate her, according to the outlet, which stated that 59 firefighters had arrived at the scene.
The Daily Mail stated that aerial footage also showed her breaking through the straps of a white bag before writhing in agony on a stretcher as she was loaded into an ambulance and transferred to a nearby ICU.
According to The Daily Mail, CCTV showed what seemed to be a vodka bottle in the car’s cupholder, suggesting that she may have been intoxicated. Authorities haven’t said whether Heche was drunk.
