In her TikTok video, O’Donnell said, “I wonder if she’s okay. I think it’s a miracle that she didn’t kill anyone, and thank God, or goddess or whoever for that. And I hope she survives. But wow, what a tragic tale.”
On the day of the crash, which remains under investigation, Los Angeles police obtained a warrant to draw Heche’s blood. If it is determined that she was intoxicated at the time of the collision, she could face misdemeanor DUI and hit-and-run charges, which would be presented to the city attorney’s office, an LAPD spokesperson told E! News.
O’Donnell encouraged viewers struggling with alcohol addiction to seek help. “Listen, Alcoholics Anonymous works. It does,” she said. “I’ve seen miracles happen. So if you’re out there and you’re struggling and you’re thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can do this,’ try it before it’s too late. Try it when you’re already at your lowest.”
