Anne Heche remains in a coma after suffering a “severe” brain injury and is “not expected to survive,” a representative for the actress told Fox News Digital Thursday evening. 

The rep added that Heche’s wish had always been to be an organ donor and “she’s being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”

“We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital,” the statement continued.

The rep added, “Anne had a huge heart and touched everyone she met with her generous spirit. More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work –especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

Anne Heche sustained significant burns from the crash and is currently in a coma at the hospital.

Heche, 53, was driving a blue Mini Cooper last week when she first crashed into a garage of an apartment complex in Los Angeles. Shortly after, she crashed her car again into a nearby home in Mar Vista and ignited a fire. 

A blood test “revealed the presence of drugs” in Heche’s system, the Los Angeles Police Department told Fox News on Thursday, but “additional testing is required to rule out any substances that were administered at the hospital as part of her medical treatment.”
