They further added that: "She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is currently being treated at the Grossman Burn Center."

CNN also reported that the Daytime Emmy award winner is under investigation for a misdemeanor DUI and hit and run, according to LAPD Officer Annie Hernandez.

Since the crash, which quickly had the car erupt into flames, destroying the home of a California resident identified as Lynne Mishele, celebrities who have previously worked with Anne have rallied around her, wishing for her wellbeing.

Twilight actor Peter Facinelli, who starred alongside her in 2021's 13 Minutes, took to Instagram Stories to extend support for her and her family. Sharing a picture of the two, presumably on set, he wrote: "Praying for you and your beautiful family."
