Actress Anne Heshey, who was one of the leading actresses in Hollywood in the 1990s, was taken to hospital after her car crashed into a Los Angeles home, according to a report in TMZ. She is known for appearing in films including Six Days, Seven Nights and Donnie Brasco and I Know What She Did Last Summer.
The event took place early Friday in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles, near Hetchy’s home. Heche was seen driving a blue Mini Cooper in photos and videos shared by American media source TMZ. The car was badly damaged at the crash site. According to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the car crashed into a two-story house and caught fire, Fox News reported. The Los Angeles Fire Department said it took 59 firefighters about 65 minutes to put out the fire associated with the collision, according to their statement.
According to eyewitnesses, it initially collided with the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get Anne out of the car, but she veered backwards and drove away. Soon after, it caused a fire by crashing into a nearby house.
The LAF also reported that although the vehicle drove 30 feet inside the house, the resident managed to escape unharmed. The Libyan armed forces said the building was left uninhabitable. She sustained severe burns to her body when she was taken to the hospital. According to a witness, the 53-year-old star was “awake and breathing” when she was taken on a stretcher. Fox News reported.
Having played the roles of twins in the TV series Another World, Anne rose to prominence in the entertainment business. The show even earned her a Daytime Emmy in 1991.
