They added: "We're told her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence of alcohol." 

Shocking photos of the wreckage show the Mini completely charred and video has been captured of the actress speeding down the residential street before the blaze.

She also reportedly blew a stop sign and was driving erratically. 

Ten fire trucks were battling the fire which destroyed the home and news reporters were heard saying they'd be shocked if anyone inside survived the blaze.
