Anne Heche Not Expected To Survive Car Accident

Actress Anne Heche is not expected to survive after suffering severe brain surgery from a car accident, a source closed to the actress confirmed.

"We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne's recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital," said Heche's representative to Variety. "Unfortunately, due to her accident, Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive."

Heche crashed her car into a house in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles (LA) last Friday, which left her in a coma with severe burns. On Monday, her representatives said she was in "extreme critical condition".

The LA police department (LAPD)  is currently investigating whether she was under the influence of drugs at the time of the crash as narcotics were found in her bloodstream. These may be the drugs administered to her in the hospital.

Heche has been on life support and she had previously chosen to donate her organs upon her death. Doctors are now determining if any of the organs are viable.

The statement from Heche's representative also said, "More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life's work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light."
