Actress Anne Heche was critically injured in a fiery car crash into a house in Mar Vista on Friday

The 1700 block of South Walgrove Avenue was the scene of the collision, which was reported just before 11 a.m., according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

According to the police, the motorist sped up a residential street before launching himself 30 feet into a house.

Speeding, the Mini Cooper involved in the collision may have struck a curb before taking off at a height of more than two feet through the front yard and into the house.

The homeowner was unharmed and was in the backyard at the time of the collision.

After the driver was saved, a neighbor related what he observed.

"There was a lot of smoke inside. I believe they moved the automobile with the crane in order to remove the driver. It was absurd."

Humphrey said that the 1952-built, 738 square foot, two-story house was where the automobile had stopped.
