Anne Heche‘s crash into an LA home this week was probably just a disaster waiting to happen — because she was allegedly speeding down other residential streets not too long before.
TMZ has obtained video of what we’re told shows Heche flying down a quiet back road into a Venice Beach neighborhood on Friday … with his same blue Mini Cooper driving almost the same dangerous speeds that landed her in the hospital.
The person who shot this tells us that this moment captured here – where Anne zooms by at an unrecognizable speed – was actually the third time she circled back on this particular street (Cabrillo Avenue). Apparently she was going up and down and back and forth … driving wild in each instance, says the eyewitness who claims to have seen it all.
Anne Heche severely burned in fiery car crash, new video shows her speed
We’re told that on the second ride at Cabrillo — which isn’t very far from where Anne ended up crashing in Mar Vista — AH actually had people yelling at her to slow down.
Even though she was driving incredibly fast, we slowed down on our new clip and you can see Anne lean forward and grab the steering wheel – looking confused. It’s not much different, a sentiment communicated from her body language in the clear picture taken of her earlier that day… where a bottle of some sort could be seen in front with her.
It’s unclear what Anne’s condition is at this point following the crash – which left her with severe burns – but we do know police were hesitant to take any tests on her at first as she was clearly unable to pass a BAC -checks and anything else they might want to manage.
Still, this new video simply confirms what we had already reported — that Anne was seen driving erratically in other surrounding neighborhoods on the same day … all at terrifying speeds.
As for how this Cabrillo Ave incident ended… our sources say we disappeared around a corner on her third time down the street – and never came back. The video was recorded at 10:45 a.m. … about an hour later, she would smash into a random person’s house.
As we reported, Heche crashed into a garage at an apartment complex just after noon in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles. A fire broke out, engulfing her car and leaving her in critical condition with severe burns.
Anne’s accident comes on the heels of another insane wreck in LA — this one off La Brea — where a car ran a red light and plowed into other drivers … reportedly killing at least 6.
