Cause of Death for Anne Heche Revealed

After passing away earlier this month following an automobile accident in Los Angeles, Anne Heche’s cause of death has been made public.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office reported that Heche passed away from “inhalation and heat injuries.” Another “significant condition” in her death is a “sternal fracture owing to blunt trauma,” according to the coroner’s findings.

According to Sarah Ardalani, the coroner’s public relations officer, a thermal injury is a burn and an inhalation injury is not always related to smoke. In the meanwhile, according to Ardalani, the coroner’s office should release further information.

According to the report, Heche passed away on August 11 and the cause of death was recorded as accidental. Heche was taken off life support on August 14 after several days in a coma, according to information provided by Heche’s representative to THR in the past.

On August 5, the celebrity’s Mini Cooper veered off the road and struck a two-story house in Los Angeles’ Mar Vista district, causing “structural compromise and bursting in severe flames,” according to the L.A. Fire Department.

The tragedy left her with burns and a severe anoxic brain injury. According to her representative, Heche was eventually found to be brain-dead, which California law regards to be legally dead, but she remained on life support so that her organs might be matched for donation.

The soap opera Another World, for which she won a Daytime Emmy Award in 1991, gave the actress her acting debut. Her performances in the movies Volcano, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Wag the Dog, and Six Days, Seven Nights are also well-known. Men in Trees and Hung are just a couple of her many TV credits.


Anne Celeste Heche was an American actress, known for her roles in a variety of genres in film, television, and theater, receiving numerous accolades, including a National Board of Review Award and multiple Emmy Awards.

After colliding with a Mar Vista house on August 5 and setting both of them on fire, Anne Heche suffered thermal injuries and died as a result of smoke inhalation. A sternal fracture caused by blunt trauma from the incident was also included in the report for Heche.
