On August 5, a 53-year-old actress died in a tragic automobile accident.
Thursday night, a Heches rep told Page Six that she was unlikely to survive.
She had suffered a serious anoxic brain injury as a result of the accident and was put in a coma at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in California.
Her spokesperson shared that it has long been her intention to donate her organs, stating that she has been kept on life support to check if any are viable.
The Heches rep thanked the actress fans for their kind wishes and prayers, as well as the dedicated staff and fantastic nurses who have cared for her since her Aug. 5 accident.
She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and will be dearly missed for her light.
Shortly after her blue Mini Cooper collided with a house in Los Angeles last Friday, the Vanished star became unconscious and in a coma.
Three days after the accident, the house and the vehicle went up in flames, leaving Heche with burns that required surgical intervention.
The spokesperson said she has a substantial pulmonary injury that requires mechanical ventilation.
The Los Angeles Police Department was reportedly able to assess Heche's blood after obtaining a warrant to perform a test.
Heches blood test results showed that fentanyl was also positive, according to TMZ Thursday afternoon. However, the medication may have been administered at the hospital to relieve the pain from the accident.
The woman who slammed into the house Heche crashed into claimed she was hurt and needed medical treatment as a result, prompting the LAPD to launch its investigation into a felony DUI, but the actress was not under the influence of alcohol, according to TMZ.
Heche shared a 20-year-old son with Laffoon, 48, who they married from 2001 to 2009. Heche shared a 13-year-old son Atlas Heche Tupper with James Tupper, her Men in Trees co-star.
