Hollywood actress Ann Hecht has been “peacefully taken off life support” nine days after suffering “severe anoxic brain injury” in a car crash.
A representative for the 53-year-old star confirmed her death to the PA news agency last night.
Ms. Heche was hospitalized after she was seriously injured in a crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on August 5.
The actress, who became famous in the late 90s, suffered burns and a brain injury when she crashed her car into a house.
Ms. Heche was classified as “legally deceased under California law” after the accident, but continued on life support in case her organs could be donated.
