The woman who was inside the Los Angeles home actress Anne Heche crashed into in early August is suing the actress’ estate for at least $2 million, court documents show.

Lynne Mishele “was working from home when she was stunned by the dramatic force of Heche’s vehicle slamming through the front wall and driving through the living room, kitchen, home office, and primary room closet before settling into the laundry/storage room of her house,” the lawsuit says.

Her home was destroyed in a fire and Mishele now suffers from acute anxiety and depression, the complaint says,

After the accident, Heche experienced a “severe anoxic brain injury,” depriving her brain of oxygen, among other critical injuries following the crash. She died days after being taken off life support.

“While the media focused its reporting on Heche’s condition, the August 5, 2022 incident left Plaintiff completely traumatized, unusually startled by hearing loud noises, plagued by nightmares and flashbacks of the incident, terrified of walking outside, and, atop that, without a place to live,” the complaint says, adding, “As a direct consequence of Heche’s outrageous conduct and unlawful acts, Plaintiff and her beloved pets almost lost their lives, not to mention that Plaintiff also had an entire life’s worth of her personal possessions destroyed in the fire.”

CNN has reached out to Homer Heche Laffoon, the executor of Heche’s estate, for comment.

The lawsuit alleges negligence that led to the crash, infliction of mental distress and trespassing. Mishele asks for compensatory and punitive damages among other financial relief.

The complaint was filed last week in California Superior Court in Los Angeles.
