Anne Heche - Crash site location.

This is the house that actress Anne Heche crashed into.

It is situated at 1766 Walgrove Avenue in the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Heche is best known for starring in Hollywood movies such as Donnie Brasco (1997), I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) and Six Days, Seven Nights (1998). She also portrayed Vicky Hudson and Marley Love on NBC's soap opera "Another World."

On August 5, 2022, a doorbell camera captured Heche speeding eastward along Preston Way. Seconds later, her blue Mini-Cooper crashed through the living room wall of this house on Walgrove Avenue.

Although the actress survived the initial impact, she suffered smoke inhalation, severe burns, a fractured sternum, and a serious brain injury that was caused by a lack of oxygen.

Video footage from an overhead news helicopter showed Heche struggling with the paramedics as they attempted to wheel her into the ambulance. It is possible that this reaction was caused by a combination of shock, alcohol, and her brain injury. She may have also been in a great deal of pain.

Shortly afterwards, she reportedly lost consciousness.

On August 11th, her family announced that she was in a coma and that she wasn't expected to survive her injuries.

Later that day, the 53-year-old was legally declared dead. However, her body was kept on life support so that the medical team could assess whether or not her organs could be donated.

On August 14th, it was announced that doctors had performed the donation procedure and that Heche's body had been taken off life support.

The house on Walgrove Avenue was left structurally compromised following the fatal crash. The homeowner also lost many of her personal possessions in the ensuing fire.

Shortly before the incident, Heche had collided with a garage wall near Lake Street. Judging by photographs of the incident, there was a bottle of liquor in her cupholder.

Although bystanders asked her to get out of the car, she refused, and drove off again.

At that point, she raced along Preston Way at a high speed before crashing through the house at Walgrove Avenue.
