Actress Anne Heche was able to speak with some of the 59 firefighters who worked to free her using a crane after she smashed her Mini into a house at 90mph and caused a huge fire, allegedly while drink-driving.
Officials say Heche, 53, pranged her Mini Clubman on a block of garages in Los Angeles around 11am Friday, before speeding off at up to 90mph and plowing 30 feet into a home.
The article goes on to state the following:
Despite the speed of the smash and the intensity of the ensuing blaze, Heche was still conscious and able to speak as she was pulled from the wreckage, Los Angeles Fire Department Captain Erik Scott told ABC 7 in the aftermath.
“When we arrived on the scene, we had a solo vehicle that appeared to be driving at a high rate of speed on a perpendicular street and launched through the front yard into the home.”
Scott said Heche was trapped in her car with flames spreading.
“She was talking to us at the time that we were able to pull her out, so that’s a good sign,” Heche said.

Authorities used a crane to pull Heche from the vehicle, reports said.
“The house was tons of smoke,” an eyewitness told NBC Los Angeles. “I think they used the crane to move the car to extract the driver. It was crazy.”
The Los Angeles Fire Department said it took 59 firefighters 65 minutes to put out the “stubborn flames” and “rescue one female adult found within the vehicle.”
“We really had a multifaceted incident here,” LAFD Capt. Erik Scott said. “We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red tagged. It’s at this point destroyed.”
Aerial footage of the incident appeared to show Heche “with brutal scarring across her back from the fire after her top appeared to have been shredded by the heat and she writhed across the stretcher in pain,” the Daily Mail reported.
According to witnesses speaking to TMZ, Heche had previously crashed the blue Mini Cooper into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the complex attempted to help Heche, but she sped away, later crashing into the home.
Neighbor’s cameras caught her speeding through the neighborhood before the crash.
