Actress Anne Heche was pronounced dead today after being taken off a ventilator for a week after her car crashed into a house in Los Angeles.

Her death was announced by her friend Nancy Davis on Instagram and confirmed by her family to The Watcher.

The actress was admitted to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital north of Los Angeles after a horror crash on August 5.

Yesterday, a representative of her loved ones confirmed she was brain dead and was being kept alive only on life support so doctors could harvest her organs for donation.

“We would like to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses who have cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital.”

“Unfortunately, Heche suffered a serious anoxic brain injury as a result of her accident and is in a critical condition, in a coma. She is not expected to survive.’

Earlier, Heche’s ex Ellen DeGeneres tweeted her grief when she learned that Heche was not expected to survive.

‘This is a sad day. I send Anne’s children, family and friends all my love.’

The crash left homeowner Lynne Mishele with injuries so severe it sparked a felony police investigation.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Heche had used a lot of cocaine while she was driving, but that has yet to be confirmed by a publicly released toxicology report.

“She’s in a coma and hasn’t regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

The terrifying video shows the actress driving into a busy road at high speed just before the accident.

In her latest Instagram post, Heche happily posed on the set of a small movie.

Good times on set with Lawrence Bros! ❤️,” the actress wrote in her caption.

DailyMail.com has learned that she had a small role in the romantic comedy Frankie Meets Jack in Braintree, Massachusetts. The film was wrapped up in mid-July and is expected to be released next year.

Heche rose to fame in the 1990s with understated Hollywood roles. In a candid memoir, years later, she revealed that she had to overcome a childhood filled with trauma when she was raped by her gay father who was in the closet.

She is survived by her two sons.

Heche began a high-profile affair with Ellen DeGeneres in 1997. She said it was her first lesbian romance and claimed that “it was the best sex I’ve ever had.”

As a result of their public split in 2000, Heche said she was blacklisted from Hollywood and her relationship with her mother was strained because she thought her daughter’s gay romance was “a sin.”

The actress is survived by her two sons, Homer Laffoon, 20, and Atlas Tupper, 13 (pictured with her ex-husband James Tupper in 2012). In a statement, the family said: “She will be remembered for her brave honesty and sorely missed for her light.”

Before Heche drove her car into a house at 1766 South Walgrove Avenue, Heche first crashed her car into a Los Angeles apartment building around 11:00 a.m. Friday morning, fled that scene and continued driving on the same block before crashing into another house. .

Heche first crashed her Mini into a garage block, before driving off, plowing through a hedge and landing completely submerged at Mishele’s house at 1766 South Walgrove Avenue. A photo taken by onlookers showed a small bottle of vodka in the cup holder.

Authorities eventually determined that Heche had no alcohol in her body, but had been using a lot of cocaine at the time of the accident.

Hours before her horrific crash, Heche made her way through a podcast, saying she drank vodka and wine after having “a really bad day.”

Today, her family chose to turn off life support after doctors officially declared the actress brain dead. They kept her alive on a ventilator to determine if her organs were healthy enough for donation.

“It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being held to determine if they are viable,” the statement said.

The actress leaves behind both ex-husbands, her two sons, her mother and sister. She was reportedly in a relationship with famed dermatologist Peter Thomas Roth at the time of her death.

Heche married cinematographer Coley Laffoon in 2001.  They had a son named Homer, born in 2002, before the couple divorced in 2009.
