Actress Anne Heche has reportedly been critically injured in a car crash in Los Angeles after a vehicle burst into flames when it hit a house.

According to reports from NBCLA, the blue Mini Cooper had been speeding down a residential street before driving 30ft into a two-storey home in Mar Vista.

The 53-year-old actress is said to have suffered ‘severe burns’ in the accident, according to local media reports.

Footage obtained by TMZ showed Heche driving the same car which was later seen with severe damage at the scene in the Mar Vista area.

The actress was taken to hospital by ambulance after being removed from the scene on a stretcher.

Footage obtained by TMZ also appears to show the same car crashing into garages of an apartment complex shortly before the second crash, with residents ordering the driver out of the car. The car is then seen reversing before speeding off away from the garages.

According to the publication, Heche is reportedly currently intubated in hospital but is expected to live, with the extent of her injuries or burns currently unknown.

The crash is said to have caused a large fire inside the property which took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to ‘access, confine and fully extinguish the stubborn flames within the heavily damaged structure’.

The LA Fire Department said one woman was found inside the car and taken to hospital and the homeowner was unharmed, although the property has been left ‘uninhabitable’ due to the fire damage.

A neighbor told NBCLA: ‘The house was tons of smoke. I think they used the crane to move the car. It was crazy.’

Heche, who is best known for starring in films including Psycho, Cedar Rapids and Donnie Brasco, also previously dated talk show host Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 until 2000.
