Despite crashing in a fiery California accident, Anne Heche is believed to be recovering fully, according to her ex-boyfriend. A blue Mini Cooper she slammed into a garage in Los Angeles Friday, then backed up and crashed into another house, leaving her intubated and in critical condition. A second crash caused Heche’s car to explode, and she was rescued on a stretcher after being trapped in the wreckage.

Heche’s ex-boyfriend, Thomas Jane, who dated her until 2020, said she would make it in an interview. In a statement, Jane said, “My thoughts and prayers are with Anne, one of the true talents of her generation. Thank God no one else was hurt.”

Seeing Heche’s car drive by, a neighbor raced to the scene after the crash to help her and her pets escape the burning car. As soon as he saw Heche, he went to help her, who was caught between an airbag and the driver’s seat.

David Manpearl, Heche’s neighbor, explained, “I tried speaking with her a few times, asking if she was ok, but she was not responding, so I had to get closer. [Finally] I was able to open the back door of the car and crawled halfway inside. This time when I asked her if she was ok, she said no.”

Upon seeing flames engulfing Heche’s car, Manpearl walked out. He said, “‘I was positive that the driver was dead. That she had burned up. It took at least 30 minutes for the fire department to douse the flames, extract the car and pull her out of the car.”

In the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles, nearly 60 firefighters spent more than an hour extinguishing the fire and rescuing Heche from the wrecked car. As a result of the accident, the house she hit was destroyed.

Bystanders were reportedly trying to stop a disheveled Heche from driving after the first crash when she was pictured behind the wheel. According to one photo, a red-topped container resembled a vodka bottle.

During the time when she dated a TV show host, Ellen DeGeneres Heche admitted that she struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. The couple was together for almost three years between 1997 and 2000.
