US actress Anne Heche will be taken off life support days after she was reported to be brain dead.

The decision comes after the 53-year-old was matched with an organ recipient, per CNN, in line with her wishes, after Heche was pulled out of her burning car, which she had driven into an LA home while driving 104 km/h on August 5.

Heche’s publicist broke the news that the Six Days, Seven Nights star was “not expected to survive” on Friday, revealing that Heche had “suffered a severe anoxic brain injury”.

“We have lost a bright light, a kind and most joyful soul, a loving mother, and a loyal friend,” her spokesperson told Page Six at the time.

“Anne will be deeply missed but she lives on through her beautiful sons, her iconic body of work, and her passionate advocacy.

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

The following day, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said in a statement that the investigation into the crash would not move forward.

“As of today, there will be no further investigative efforts made in this case,” the LAPD said in a statement to Page Six.

“Any information or records that have been requested prior to this turn of events will still be collected as they arrive as a matter of formalities and included in the overall case.

“When a person suspected of a crime expires, we do not present for filing consideration.”

After the results for Heche’s blood test following the crash detected “the presence of drugs” in her system, police investigations escalated to a “preliminary” felony DUI.

Gossip magazine TMZ reported on August 10 that the investigation was escalated after a woman claimed she was injured and needed medical assistance due to Heche crashing into her home.

However, an LAPD public information officer told Page Six that the felony was preliminary due to pending further toxicology testing.

Heche, who never regained consciousness after the crash, is survived by her 13-year-old son Atlas, who she shares with actor James Trupper, as well as her 20-year-old son Homer, shared with ex-husband Coleman Laffoon.

On Saturday, Tupper shared a sweet tribute to his late wife to Instagram, posting a single photo of Heche along with the caption: “love you forever 💔”.

Laffoon took to social media to wish his ex-wife peace on her journey, sharing a throwback photo of Heche with their son as a baby.

“It’s important to remember the real love in the best times. Thank you Anne. Peace on your journey,” he wrote.
