The crash in August “totally traumatized” Lynne Mishele, destroying her house and “an life that is whole worth of her individual belongings,” the lawsuit says.
Anne Heche’s property has been sued by the woman whose Los Angeles house was damaged into the motor car wreck that killed Heche.
Heche, 53, died Aug. 14 after she crashed her Mini Cooper into Lynne Mishele’s house in Mar Vista, sparking a fire after she had been removed from life support nine days.
Calling the crash a “horrific and incident that is tragic” the lawsuit, filed Thursday in l . a . County Superior Court, claims Mishele and her pets nearly passed away into the incident Aug. 5. It seeks at least $2 million in damages.
Heche’s vehicle, the lawsuit says, barreled through the front of Mishele’s house before it came “to a halt just feet away” from her; her two dogs, Bree and Reuben; and her tortoise, Marley.
“As a direct consequence of Heche’s conduct that is crazy illegal acts, [Mishele] and her beloved animals nearly lost their everyday lives, in addition [Mishele] also had a complete life’s worth of her personal belongings damaged in the fire,” including mementos from her deceased parents, who both passed away in 2020, the lawsuit says.
A agent for Heche’s estate didn’t answer a immediately request for comment.
The crash, which caused a fire, had been ruled any sort of accident by the l . a . County examiner’s workplace that is medical.
A Los Angeles authorities spokesman had said police were investigating the crash being a felony DUI collision. However, after Heche — who made her mark in Hollywood with functions in “Donnie Brasco,” “Volcano” and “I Know that which you did summertime that is final” was announced brain-dead, police said there would be no more investigative efforts.
Mishele’s lawsuit asks for at minimum $2 million, which could increase depending in the value that is total of from the crash.
