As for the cause of the crash, although it has not been confirmed, according to photos taken at the scene, there appears to be a bottle of what may be alcohol in the front seat cupholder of her car, near the gearshift.

In the mean time, Heche is currently intubated and under careful watch at the hospital. She is said to be "expected to live," however, due to her current condition, doctors are unable to test if she was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs at this time.
