Actress Anne Hech, pictured in March, was pronounced dead today, a week after a horrific accident in Los Angeles

Anne Hech’s son has paid tribute to his mother, saying he hopes she is now “out of pain” after she was pronounced dead on Friday after her cocaine-fuelled car crashed into a Los Angeles home.

The actress was admitted to the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills Hospital north of Los Angeles after the horrific accident on August 5 and was kept alive on life support until doctors harvested her organs.

Homer, 20, said: “My brother Atlas and I lost our mum.

“After six days of almost unbelievable emotional ups and downs, I was left with a deep, speechless sadness.

“Hopefully my mom is out of pain and starting to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom.”

He then thanked well-wishers for their support.

“Thousands of friends, family and fans have opened their hearts to me over these six days,” he said People in the statement.

“I am grateful for their love, as well as the support of my dad, Kohli and my stepmom, Alexi, who continue to be my rock during this time.”

“Rest in peace mom, I love you,” he added.

Hatch shared son Homer with her ex Coley Lafune and son Atlas, 13, with ex James Tupper.

Hech married cameraman Collie Lafune in 2001.  They had one son, Homer, born in 2002, before the couple divorced in 2009.

In 1997, Hitchie had a high-profile affair with Ellen DeGeneres.  She said it was her first lesbian affair and claimed

Ellen DeGeneres, who came out in 1997 and revealed she was dating Hech, tweeted her sadness after learning that Hech was not supposed to survive.

“It’s a sad day. I send Ann’s children, family and friends all my love.’

Her family said Friday that she is now presumed dead.

“Today we lost a bright light, a kind and joyful soul, a loving mother and a faithful friend.

“Ghan will be greatly missed, but she lives on thanks to her beautiful sons, her iconic work and her passionate advocacy.

“Her bravery for always standing up for her truth while spreading a message of love and acceptance will continue to have a lasting impact.”

Heche’s heart is still beating thanks to life support, which is keeping her alive long enough for her organs to be harvested for donation.

In last week’s crash, homeowner Lynn Michel was so seriously injured that police launched a criminal investigation.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Heche was under the influence of cocaine when she was driving, but that has yet to be confirmed by a publicly released toxicology report.

As a result of the fire, the actress suffered severe smoke inhalation.

Her spokesman said yesterday: “Anne is in a very critical condition at this time. She has significant lung damage requiring mechanical ventilation and burns requiring surgery.

“She is in a coma and does not regain consciousness shortly after the accident.”

The horrifying video showed the actress driving at high speed straight into a busy road minutes before the accident.

In her latest Instagram post, Heche happily posed on the set of a small film.

“Good time on set with Lawrence! ❤️”, the actress wrote in her signature.

DailyMail.com has learned that she is starring in a small role in the romantic comedy Frankie Meets Jack in Braintree. Massachusetts. The film was completed in mid-July and is expected to go on floors next year.

Hatch rose to fame in the 1990s with low-key Hollywood roles. In a candid memoir years later, she revealed how she had to overcome the childhood trauma of being raped by her secretly gay father.

She is survived by two sons.

In 1997, Hitchie had a high-profile affair with Ellen DeGeneres. She said it was her first lesbian affair and claimed “it was the best sex I’ve ever had”.

As a result of their public split in 2000, Hecht said she was blacklisted from Hollywood and her relationship with her mother was strained because she considered her daughter’s same-sex affair a “sin”.

Before crashing her car into a home at 1766 South Walgrove Ave., Hechey first crashed her car into a Los Angeles apartment building Friday morning around 11:00 a.m. She fled the scene and continued driving down that same block before crashing into another house.

Hatch first crashed her Mini into a garage block, then ran, plowed through a hedge and ended up completely submerged in Michelle’s home at 1766 South Walgrove Ave. A photo taken by onlookers showed a small bottle of vodka in a cup holder.

Authorities eventually determined that Heche had no alcohol in her system, but that she was high on cocaine at the time of the crash.

Hours before her horrific accident, Heche vaguely said on a podcast that she was drinking vodka and wine after a “very bad day”.

Today, her family decided to turn off life support after doctors officially declared the actress brain dead. They kept her alive on a ventilator to determine if her organs were healthy enough for donation.

“She has long chosen to donate her organs and is on life support to determine if they are viable,” the statement said.

The actress is survived by both ex-husbands, two sons, mother and sister.

She is believed to have been dating the famous dermatologist Peter Thomas Roth at the time of her death.
