Anne Heche was not under the influence of a drug during her fatal accident


Anne Heche's autopsy has confirmed that substances present in her system at the time of her death did not affect her ability to drive. 

< p>According to a Los Angeles County medical examiner's report, obtained by Page Six on Tuesday (6 Dec 22), while illicit substances were found in the body of the late 13 Minutes star at the time of his dead, it was determined that they were not a key factor in the car accident that killed her. Anne Heche died in August after her Mini Cooper crashed into a home in California, catching fire.

The coroner's report said a toxicology screen of her urine was positive for cocaine , cannabis, benzodiazepines and fentanyl. The substances, however, had been in the body for some time, and “there was no indication of impairment by illicit narcotics at the time of the accident.”

According to People, the report also cites the absence of alcohol in his body.

The medical examiner ruled that his death was accidental and caused by inhalation and thermal injuries. The fracture to her sternum was treated as secondary, although the coroner advised that “breathing would have been painful when she was in her vehicle”.

The doctor also found that she got stuck in her car for half an hour before first responders were able to extricate her. During this time, her car was charred, her clothes almost entirely burned and Anne Heche suffered second degree burns on 12% of her body.
