Anne Heche fiery crash investigation upgraded to ‘FELONY’
Anne Heche, 53, is in a coma in hospital following a fiery crash when she drove through a home occupied by a woman and her pets.
Heche is reportedly listed in 'extreme critical condition' - with injuries that are far more serious than first thought.
The police believe Heche's reckless driving may have been done while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
'At this time, Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention,' a rep for the actor said in a statement.
'She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident,' it added.
LAPD officers are poised to sample her blood from her hospital bed within the coming weeks to get to the bottom of whether she was under the influence while behind the wheel.
New images showed the homeowner's 'entire lifetime of possessions' go up in flames during the horror collision on Friday morning.
TMZ reports that police in Los Angeles are treating the incident as a potential felony investigation because of injuries to the woman inside that home.
