Ann Heck, the Emmy-winning actress and star of 1998’s “Six Days and Seven Nights” and 1997’s “Donnie Brasco” and ex-partner of Ellen DeGeneres was seriously injured on Friday, August 5, when her car crashed into a a house in Los Angeles.
The vehicle crashed into a two-story home in the Mar Vista neighborhood on the city’s west side, and a massive fire broke out, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
The car involved in the crash is in Heck’s name, officials told the Los Angeles Times.
Officials have not confirmed that Heck was the driver. A img told CNN that Heck was the person who was injured and taken to the hospital.
Nearly 60 firefighters attended the crash site and extinguished the fire an hour later.
The TMZ also posted a photo of Heck in the car, with a bottle with a red cap in her cup holder.
Law enforcement officials said the actor was “acting under the influence of drugs,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
However, TMZ imgs point out that Heck’s condition prevented doctors from determining if she was under the influence of alcohol while driving the Mini Cooper.
