On August 5, actress Anne Heche struck a house in Los Angeles’ Mar Vista area with her blue Mini Cooper. Lynn Mishele, the resident, was present in the house at the time. Fortunately, Mishele and her pets made it through the collision. Just before Heche’s automobile slammed almost entirely through her house, she reportedly got up to conduct chores in a room at the back of the property.

After the collision, Heche fell into a coma and passed away. Mishele managed to escape with minimal to no injuries, but she is now dealing with the fallout from losing practically all of her possessions in an instant.

Heche had to be rescued from her car, which caught fire nearly immediately after colliding with the house, and it took 59 firefighters more than an hour to do so.




Mishele was fortunate enough to flee and survive since the area of the house she was in at the time of the collision did not immediately catch fire.

While you may have previously seen recordings of Heche rushing through neighborhood streets just before the incident, seeing the aftermath of the crash from inside the house is a completely different experience. The interior of Mishele’s house was seen on camera by TMZ. There is a tonne of wreckage and rubble. Heche appears to have destroyed both an internal and exterior wall before the car finally came to a stop.

You can see for yourself what Mishele’s house looks like by watching the video below.

The GoFundMe set up by Mishele’s neighbors will assist Mishele in rebuilding her life after losing everything. They wrote, “Lynne and her family very narrowly escaped physical harm, and for that we are very, very grateful. The home, however, was completely burned – with 59 firefighters taking 65 minutes to extinguish the flames – and immediately red-tagged by the LAFD, necessitating that Lynne leave the place she rents and loves. Even more distressing is that Lynne lost her entire lifetime of possessions, mementos, all equipment for her business including her laptop and iPad, all of her clothing and basic necessities, and all household items.” The fundraiser’s initial target was $100,000, but it has already surpassed $177,000 in donations.
