Actress Anne Heche remains hospitalized in an intensive-care unit and is in a coma, and has not regained consciousness since crashing into a Mar Vista home on Friday.

Heche's manager released a statement on Monday, revealing that the actress is in critical condition and has required a ventilator after suffering a significant pulmonary injury.

"At this time she is in extreme critical condition she has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident," Heche's manager said in a statement sent to CBS News.

On Friday, a doorbell camera caught Heche's car allegedly speeding down a road before the crash. Minutes later, she slammed into a home which went up in flames. A woman living in the house was trapped. She was uninjured, but told CBS2 she "lost everything."

Heche has not charged but police say she was allegedly doing twice the legal speed limit. 

Witnesses say Heche crashed her car into a garage minutes before she hit the house. CNN reported that a source close to Heche said the actress was badly burned and has a long recovery ahead. 

The woman living inside of the home that Heche crashed into lost everything after the crash. 

Neighbors of Lynne Mishele, the woman who lived inside the home that Heche crashed into, set up a GoFundMe page to help her rebound after losing all her personal belongings. 

Mishele lived in the home with her two dogs and tortoise. The GoFundMe page has already raised more than $86,000 and if you'd like to make a donation, you can find the page here.
