Pictured: Anne Heche just after the first impact. When Anne first crashed into the garage, locals rushed to her side. One of them asked her to get out of the car. She ignored him, restarted the engine, put it in reverse, stepped on the gas and started. They managed to take a picture of her, and in the pictures Anne looks dazed. The bottle she had in her cup holder was also suspicious. It probably had alcohol in it.
Moments later, the actress sped off the road again, plowed through a hedge and crashed into a nearby home in the 1880 block of South Walgrove Avenue. The impact caused an explosion and the car ended up in flames.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said it took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to extinguish the flames and rescue the adult woman inside the vehicle. The flames also reached the house into which Anne crashed.
Aerial footage shows the actress writhing in pain with burns on her back. YOU CAN FIND PHOTOS OF THE WRECK IN THE GALLERY.

The American television Fox captured the events after the accident on its cameras in the helicopter:
Actress Anne Heche, a native of Aurora, Ohio, last starred in the action film 13 Minutes alongside Thora Birch, Amy Smart and Will Peltz. In January 2018, she went through a very nasty divorce with James Tupper. The couple have been together for 10 years and have a 13-year-old son, Atlas.
Anne was also known for her romance with presenter and comedian Ellen DeGeneres in the 1990s. The couple appeared together at the premiere of the actress’ film Sopka in 1997. She claimed that she was blacklisted by Hollywood because of this relationship.
After breaking up with Ellen, the actress was found babbling incoherently in the California desert. She staggered in a stranger’s house and ended up in the hospital just a few hours after breaking up with the comedian. The actress was supposed to take ecstasy.
Later, she spoke openly about her problems with alcohol and drugs or primiskuite. According to her, she was doing everything she could to get rid of the shame. Her painful decisions are due to an ugly childhood in which she was sexually abused by her father, Donald Heche.
“I’m not crazy, but I lead a crazy life. I grew up in a crazy family and it took 31 years to get rid of the craziness. I had a fantasy world to escape to. I named my alter ego Celestia. I believed I was from another planet. I think I was crazy then,’ the actress told ABC News in 2001.
