Anne Heche Car Accident: TMZ claims that Heche crashed into the garage of an apartment complex early that morning. The media outlet claims to have caught her stealing after the event in the video, albeit the tape lacks a time stamp.
David Manpearl, a neighbor of the wrecked home, said that he heard a vehicle go past his window on Friday morning while he was working at his computer. There was then a loud bang that followed.
Anne Heche Car Accident: Manpearl told the AlphaNewsCall Reporter that when he ran from his house, he saw that his neighbor’s car had smashed through the front wall of the building and was trapped in the rear wall.
After entering, he came upon a barefoot woman in the middle of her kitchen pleading for help with her cats, which he reported to the local media.
Manpearl also said that he tried to help Heche and helped the occupant of the home escape. He said, “She couldn’t move because the ceiling had collapsed and there was rubble everywhere.”
Anne Heche Car Accident: At that moment, fires began to break out all around. Manpearl told the Times that we were engulfed in it. As it made its way from the automobile to the home, the smoke became denser. After waiting for the fire department to come for a little longer than I thought was safe, I had to leave the home.
CBSLA reports that after Heche was brought to the hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries, the wrecked blue Mini Cooper was removed from the house.
