Earlier today, it was announced by her relatives that she is brain dead and therefore it was decided to disconnect her from mechanical support.
According to the same announcement, the 53-year-old actress remained on a ventilator until it was determined whether her organs could be used for transplants, as Anne Hess herself wished.
The accident happened on Friday, August 5, when her car crashed into a house in Los Angeles.
Hess was known for her participation in “Six Days and Seven Nights” in 1998 and “Donnie Brasco” in 1997.
He was the partner of Ellen DeGeneres
Her vehicle, according to Huffington, crashed into a two-story home in the Mar Vista neighborhood on the city’s west side, and then a massive fire broke out, according to what the Los Angeles Fire Department said.
The car involved in the crash is in Heck’s name, officials told the Los Angeles Times.
Officials have not confirmed that Hess was the driver. A source told CNN that Hess was the person who was injured and taken to the hospital.
Nearly 60 firefighters attended the crash site and extinguished the fire an hour later.
Witnesses describe how the actress was driving at an excessively high speed.
It originally fell into the garage of an apartment complex. He left the scene and then speeding up again crashed into an apartment building with the vehicle eventually catching fire.
TMZ posted a photo of her in the car, with a bottle with a red cap in her cup holder.
Law enforcement officials said the actor was “acting under the influence of drugs,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
However, TMZ’s sources point out that Heck’s condition prevented doctors from determining if she was actually under the influence of alcohol.
