TMZ reported on Heche’s first car accident Friday morning before she plowed into the home:
Anne Heche was driving like a maniac in between her two car crashes … and new video shows her speeding down a residential street before crashing into a home and igniting a blaze.
TMZ obtained footage showing Anne flying down a street in her blue Mini Cooper, and you can hear the car tearing through the neighborhood, and also hear her crash.
We’re told this happened after Anne’s initial crash into a garage at an apartment complex. Remember, she reversed and sped off from the first crash, and this video captures the moment she crashes into a nearby home, causing a blaze.
The crash went down just after noon in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles. Witnesses tell TMZ, she was driving a blue Mini Cooper and crashed into the garage of an apartment complex.
Residents of the apartment complex tried getting Anne out of the vehicle but she put the car in reverse and then sped off. A short time later, she crashed into a nearby home, igniting a fire. The fire was significant and engulfed the house.
