Last Friday (05) Anne was traveling in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles when she was involved in an accident in her blue Mini Cooper in the garage of an apartment complex.
Anne was rescued by local residents, but she reversed and accelerated, causing the car to crash into a house again. The impact was so strong that the car and house caught fire.
Firefighters came and rescued the actress, and according to American website TMZ, at least two people would have been run over by the celebrity before the collision that set the car on fire.
Also according to the website, the Los Angeles Police Department obtained a search warrant to perform a blood draw on the actress to determine if she was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol at the time of the accident.
Officials suspect Anne may have been drunk when she crashed her car.
Anne is known for her roles in shows like Men in Trees, Hung, Save Me, Aftermath and The Brave. In cinema he has also taken part in feature films such as Volcano, Jogando com Prazer and Seis Dias, Sete Noites.
Anne is in a coma after suffering severe burns and being intubated.
A representative for Anne has told TMZ that she has a lung injury.
“Right now, Anne is in extremely critical condition. She has significant lung damage requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and did not regain consciousness after the accident.”
