Nearly 60 firefighters responded to the crash scene and extinguished the fire after an hour, the fire department officials said.
Witnesses said the actor, who appeared to initially crash into an apartment complex garage, left that site and sped away again, TMZ reports said.
Another clip shows first responders wheeling a stretcher carrying a fully covered body into an ambulance, but then a woman pushes herself out of the bag and begins to sit up.
TMZ also published a photo of Heche inside the car along with a red-capped bottle in her cupholder.
Sources told TMZ that Heche’s condition prevented doctors from determining if she was under the influence of alcohol while driving the Mini Cooper.
HuffPost has reached out to Heche’s representative for comment.
