“She is an amazingly talented woman. I love you Anne, I love you and I think you are such a talented person. I hope everything is OK. I hope you come through this. My heart goes out to you. I’m sorry you had this tragic thing happen to you, and I’m sending you all my love. Everyone please join me in sending their support and love to the wonderful Anne Heche.”

Los Angeles Police Public Information Officer Jeff Lee told CNN that Heche was driving at high speeds when she hit the home which was then engulfed in flames. It then took first responders more than an hour to extinguish those flames.

A witness told NBC Los Angeles that they watching a “crane to move the car to extract the driver. It was crazy.”

“We really had a multifaceted incident here,” Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott explained. “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had a car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”

Her ex-boyfriend, Thomas Jane, told the Daily Mail that “my thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation. Thank God no one else was hurt.”

And the father of her son, James Tupper, also took to Instagram to share a few words. “Thoughts and prayers for this lovely woman, actress, and mother tonight, Anne Heche. We love you.”

It is not yet known if Heche was under the influence during the accident or not. No other injuries were reported and the crash remains under investigation.

Heche is a mother to one, a 13-year-old son named Atlas. Mamas Uncut will update this report as new information continues to come to light.
