Woman who lived in the house Anne Heche plowed into breaks silence, comments on ‘devastating’ result

The Los Angeles woman who providentially avoided serious injury in the horrific Anne Heche car crash has released a video statement on Instagram.

Behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper, Heche, 53, plowed into a home that Lynne Mishele was renting in the Mar Vista neighborhood, setting the two-story structure on fire and engulfing the car in flames as it exploded.

Mishele was reportedly home at the time of the August 5 incident but apparently in a different part of the residence than where the primary impact occurred. A neighbor told People magazine that Mishele was “extremely fortunate” to have survived.

Heche, who was in a coma after the accident, tragically died on Friday. The actress was a mom of two.

“The news of Anne Heche passing is devastating. Her family and her friends and her children, especially, really have suffered a great loss, and my heart goes out for them. This entire situation is tragic, and there really are just no words. I’m sending love to everybody involved,” Mishele said on the social media platform.


In a previous video, the lucky-to-be-alive woman noted that she was “still recovering and trying to figure out up from down, but I did want to send a huge, huge thank you to everybody from all over the world for the overwhelming amount of love and compassion and generosity and kindness that people have shown over the past week. It’s obviously been the most insane, traumatic time, confusing, so…eventually I will try to get back to everybody and read everybody’s comments, but…thank you, thank you everybody from the bottom of my heart…”

“While Mishele’s injuries weren’t severe, on Aug. 10, the LAPD escalated its investigation to a felony DUI after she claimed she needed medical assistance as a result of the incident,” the New York Post reported.

According to TMZ, “LAPD sources say Anne was under the influence of cocaine and possibly fentanyl on Aug. 5 when she committed at least 2 hit-and-runs before crashing through a home and causing a fire.”

The Post separately detailed that adversity has surrounded the Heche family. Anne’s mother Nancy, a psychologist, “has now outlived four of her five children — in addition to her secretly gay husband, Donald, who died of AIDS in 1983.”

A GoFundMe fundraiser set up by the couple who own the home has raised nearly $170,00 so far for Mishele, who lost almost all of her personal possessions and her work-related devices in the inferno.

“A kind and generous person, Lynne is always first to offer help to others. Today we are asking the community to come together and help Lynne start over,” the GoFundMe page explains.

Mishele’s purported LinkedIn page and website indicates that she runs a business helping clients get organized and eliminate clutter.
