An eyewitness of Anne Heche’s accident in Los Angeles shared details on the crash with Fox News Digital on Saturday.

The witness, Lynne Bernstein, detailed the crash as "horrific" and said he could "hardly breathe" when trying to assist Heche out of the blue Mini Cooper she was driving.

"The smoke was just getting way too intense, we could hardly breathe," Bernstein said. "The smoke was making it difficult to see."

Bernstein said that he and his wife witnessed a car going down their street at a "high rate of speed" before his wife heard Heche’s car crash into their neighbor’s house.

Bernstein noted that his neighbor, Dave, asked Heche if she was alright and she responded that she was not. The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived on the scene, asked the neighbors if anyone was in the house and they alerted the first responders that a woman was inside.

The tenant of the house exited her home from a side room and was "shocked" by what had happened. "Get out of my house," the tenant told the group of people outside her home before she realized a car had struck her home.

Brian Humphrey, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department, told Fox News Digital the person involved in the accident was transferred to a hospital and is in critical condition.

Dave took the tenant’s two dogs to his home. Bernstein noted that the tenant was "perfectly fine, thank God" following the explosive crash.

Bernstein shared with Fox News Digital that Heche was "conscious" but he did not know how "coherent" she was following the crash.
