Actor Heche was trapped in inferno for 45min after crash: Probe

Los Angeles, Sept 3: First responders could not reach Anne Heche to begin treating the actor as she was trapped, mortally injured, for 45 minutes after her car crashed into a house in Los Angeles last month, according to a new report.
Amid appalling flames and smoke from the crash, firefighters could not reach the car for 20 minutes and then couldn’t get it out of the building to extract her for at least another 20 minutes, an NBC report has said citing fire department documents and radio communications.
Heche, 53, died from inhalation and burn injuries, having also sustained a broken sternum in the August 5 crash, and the death was ruled an accident, according to coroner’s results released a few days after she was taken off life support on August 11.
She was injured when her car jumped a curb and smashed into a west Los Angeles house. The car and the house burst into flames. Only Heche was injured. (UNI)
