She never regained consciousness after the accident and died on August 12 in a burn unit in Lost Hills, California. She was 53 years old at the time.

"Today we lost a brilliant light, a lovely and joyous spirit, a loving mother, and a faithful friend," a representative for Anne's family told People.

"Anne will be greatly missed, but her gorgeous boys, legendary body of work, and impassioned activism will continue on." "Her boldness in always speaking her truth and promoting her message of love and acceptance will have a long-lasting impact," the statement concluded.

Under California law, Anne is technically dead, but her family verified to the source that her heart is still beating and that she has not been taken off life support to allow the OneLegacy Foundation time to locate candidates who will be a match.

"Unfortunately, owing to her accident, Anne Heche sustained a serious anoxic brain damage and remains in a coma, in critical condition," her family and friends said in a statement sent through the actress' representative the night before. She is unlikely to survive."

"She has long chosen to donate her organs, and she is being maintained on life support to see whether any are viable," the statement continued.

Anne was seriously injured after crashing her Mini Cooper into a home in L.A.'s Mar Vista area, igniting both the car and the house. Paramedics extricated and rescued her less than an hour after the incident, but she had already suffered smoke inhalation and serious burns.

Her eldest son, Homer Laffoon, 20, whom she shared with ex-husband Coleman Laffoon, and Atlas Tupper, 13, whom she shared with her former companion of ten years and Men in Trees costar James Tupper, survive her. James uploaded a photo of Anne on Instagram just before her death and captioned it, "Love you forever," with a broken heart emoji.
