Anne Heche comes through after terrible car accident: Thomas Jane

According to her ex-boyfriend, Anne Heche is “getting through” after a violent car accident in California.

Heche, 53, was reportedly intubated and is in critical condition after she was thrown into a Los Angeles garage in her blue Mini Cooper on Friday, then reversed and fled before hitting another home.

The car exploded after the second crash and Heche – who was reportedly badly burned – was later seen thrashing about on a stretcher after first responders rescued her from the wrecked vehicle.

Ex-boyfriend Thomas Jane, an actor who only started dating Heche in 2020, told the Daily Mail she expects to make it.

“My thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation. Thank goodness no one was hurt,” Jane said in a statement, according to the outlet.

A neighbor who saw Heche’s car speed past after the accident, he told the Daily Mail, helped the homeowner get herself and her pets out of the burning building.

He then went to help Heche, who was trapped between the driver’s seat and an airbag.

“I tried to speak to her a couple of times and asked if she was okay, but she didn’t answer, so I had to get closer,” said David Manpearl. “I was able to open the back door of the car and half crawled inside. This time when I asked her if everything was ok, she said no.”

Manpearl exited the car as flames overtook it.

“I was certain the driver was dead,” he said. “That she was burned. It took firefighters at least 30 minutes to put out the flames, pull the car out and pull her out of the car.”

It took nearly 60 firefighters just over an hour to extinguish the blaze and rescue Heche from the burned and wrecked car in the Mar Vista area of ​​LA. The house she met was destroyed.

A disheveled-looking Heche was pictured at the wheel of her car after the first crash, when bystanders apparently tried to get her to stop driving. One photo showed a container with a red lid that looked like a vodka bottle.

“We really had a multifaceted incident here,” LAFD Captain Erik Scott said after the crash. “We had a serious traffic accident, we had a woman trapped in it, we had a car that caught fire and then we had a house that had a serious fire, which is marked in red. It is destroyed at this point.”

Heche, who has admitted to having used drugs and alcohol in the past, dated Ellen DeGeneres from 1997 to 2000. After their relationship ended, a shattered and disoriented Heche drove to Fresno and knocked on a stranger’s door. She was briefly hospitalized after the incident.

Heche has said in previous interviews that she was abused by her father, Don Heche, from when she was a child until she was 12 years old. Don Heche died of AIDS in 1983 and Anne said he led a double life as a secret homosexual.

More than 50 firefighters were deployed to put out a huge fire in Anne Heche's Mini Cooper.
