Anne Heche crashed her car into a Los Angeles home on Friday, while the owner was in the backyard.
The Los Angeles Police Department said the crash occurred just before 11 a.m. when a vehicle ran off the road and collided with a home in the 1700 block of Walgrove Avenue in Mar Vista.
“The vehicle became engulfed in flames,” the LAPD told Insider.
Heche was transported to a local hospital by the Los Angeles Fire Department for treatment. The LAPD said one person was injured and could not comment on the damage to the home.
A source told CNN the driver was Anne Heche.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said they rescued a “critically injured person” and that it took the department 59 firefighters and 65 minutes to put out the blaze. The LAFD said the car went at least 30 ft. into the residence, missing the woman who was home at the time.
A neighbor told NBC Los Angeles there was tons of smoke coming from the home.
“I think they used the crane to move the car to extract the driver. It was crazy,” the neighbor said.
Actress Rosanna Arquette called the accident “tragic” and asked people to pray for Heche.
Heche’s condition is currently unknown. Representatives for Heche did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
