Actress Anne Heche dies of car crash injuries
LOS ANGELES - Anne Heche has lost her battle for life. She was 53.

Her son Homer confirmed her death in a statement to The Los Angeles Times Friday.

Heche was removed from life support days after being hospitalized after crashing her car into a Mar Vista home, which then caught fire.

The Emmy- and Tony-nominated actor, whose work in “Six Days Seven Nights,” “Another World” and dozens of other projects, dovetailed with a groundbreaking romance with Ellen DeGeneres that challenged homophobia in Hollywood.

She suffered significant burns in the crash. On Thursday, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that a blood test showed Heche was under the influence of narcotics at the time, and another law enforcement source told The Times that Heche’s initial blood test showed cocaine in her system.
