According to her representative, Anne Heche is in "extreme critical condition" after being hospitalized last week with severe burn injuries sustained in a car accident.

The representative told entertainment website Deadline that the Emmy-nominated actor is still unconscious.

Anne is currently in a very critical condition. She needs mechanical ventilation due to a significant pulmonary injury, and surgery is needed to treat burns. 

She has not awakened since shortly after the accident and is currently in a coma "said the representative.

The revised statement was made a few days after Heche's publicist optimistically declared on Saturday that she was "in stable condition.

Heche is heard slurring her words in a podcast that was released on Friday and has been associated with the crash on social media.

According to sources close to the Los Angeles Police Department, the actor may have been driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

According to the insiders, authorities have a warrant to take Heche's blood.
