The Young and the Restless recurring Jensen Buchanan (Elise Moxley), who is best known for her soap opera work as Vicky/Marley on the defunct Another World and as Sarah Gordon on One Life to Live, was arrested on Wednesday morning around 6:20am for an alleged DUI car crash that left the other driver with injuries.  This in a report from the California Highway Patrol (CHP).

According to the report,  Buchanan was reportedly driving her black 2016 Mercedes east on State Route 154, in Buelton, near Santa Barbara.  Officials said her vehicle drifted across a double yellow line and slammed into a white 2014 Ford C-Max which was going west.  Buchanan and the driver of the other vehicle were both taken to Cottage Hospital as a result of their injuries.

The CHP said her injuries were minor but that the 56-year-old Camarillo man in the Ford is being treated for “major injuries.” They did not specify the extent of his injuries.  They arrested her and charged her later for a DUI.  The route was closed for nearly 20 minutes as a result of the crash.

Just goes to show the characters they play are not necessarily who they are. How are you drunk at six O’Clock in the morning? Thank God no one was killed.

Anyone drunk and on the road at 6 a.m. was most likely drinking all night, right? DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE.

People will never learn, don’t drink and drive. Jensen has a drinking problem, she needs to get help. I hope the man, get better. Jensen needs to go to jail, and teach her a lesson. Not to drink and drive.

Agreed. Don’t drink and drive. Period. You know what BUGS me the most is that these actors could AFFORD a driver or a cab. So stupid and, ultimately, selfish to choose otherwise. Always makes me believe that it is far from the FIRST TIME that the person drove drunk….thought they’d make it to their destination again…stupid.

The man who was injured was Bradley Asolas 56 years old ! I don’t think this is someone making up a story I just can’t find out any info if you can help me fine I just know what this family is going thru and no it is in no way any reflection on the actress I am not here to judge

k/kay, sadly, there is no good info on Bradley. All the news reports focus on the celebrity! “Jesen , was driving on the eastbound lanes of Highway 154 west of Live Oak at 6:19 a.m. when she allowed her black Mercedes S550 to drift across the double yellow line, according to Officer John Ortega of the California Highway Patrol in Buellton.” I would contact the CHP to see if they would release any info on Brad. Let them know you want to help him. Also, contact the hospital he was taken to. [ Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital ]The hospital may… Read more »

Hitting the reply all button after sending a sexy email to your hubby is a bad mistake, drinking while under the influence is a choice—a choice that cost another human being harm– as much I love her too, she needs to face the consequences of her choice if her drinking was the root cause of the accident–so I am praying for her, but also for the person who was injured by her poor choice to drink after drinking

He is not doing well. Still in the hospital where Jensen left him. on breathing tube, infections, if anyone wants to send prayers, cards, flowers and his wife has no car, using money to stay in hotels to be near him (they are from AZ, were looking to re locate) now -they HAVE to relocate, only he can’t finish his interview for his new position or start his new job.

She should be punished if she has done wrong. Just because she is a celebrity, she should not be excused. There is a double standard in this country, one for regular folk, and one for celebs. Totally unfair!

Guest

She is hardly a celebrity, even in daytime she sort of a has-been. Just don’t drink and drive is the answer. In this day and age with uber taxis and an awareness of the consequences you would think people would learn but I guess not.

This is so hard to believe but I guess it could happen to anyone. We don’t know the whole story but she could have been out at a party and thought that she was capable of driving. I’m glad she’s ok & hope the driver in the other car will be alright as well. We have to learn to keep our car keys in our purses and call a cab when we’re drinking because even one drink can react differently on a person.

Sorry to hear when someone loses their job. But it was all Jensen’s fault. My question is, was she going to the liquor store at 6 in the morning or leaving a bar during that time of day?

Speaking from the position of someone who is coming up on 5 years without a drink, you are drunk at six in the morning because you’ve been up all night drinking or you drink all the time. You may think you’ve sobered up because the sun is out, but thats a dangerous lie. Thank god no one was killed and I hope the man that was injured recovers quickly. I truly hope Ms. Buchanan gets professional help.

With Uber, it is inexcusable for ANYONE to get behind a wheel after having too much to drink. It angers me when I read that when people have the means, do not put yourself or others in danger. The biggest question is why someone is drunk at 6:00 in the morning. I wish the driver a quick recovery and hope JB gets immediate attention for a serious problem. Be accountable!

jaybird369

Ray…oh, I agree!!!!! Being drunk at 6:20AM in the morning is BEYOND STUPID!!!!! At that time of morning, people should either (1) still be in bed sleeping or (2) about to wake up in order to get ready for work. But, hung over in the very early AM of the morning? NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!!!!!!

Take care, Ray.

Don’t have all the facts of the case, but in general I do not have much sympathy for anyone arrested for DUI because in this day and age when the evidence of the dangers of driving after consuming alcohol are so well known there is no excuse to do it, other than believing the fantasy that somehow nothing bad will happen to you. I do know depending how much you consumed you could have your last drink at midnight and still have the alcohol in your system in the morning when you think you are as sober as a judge,… Read more »

The post says this is an alleged DUI. Don’t be so quick to judge her with such unkind comments. This is the problem with blogs and social media – you can post anything you like without getting all the facts.

Seriously? They use the word allegedly so they won’t be sued. She was arrested for a DUI and that’s a fact.

This is the problem with commenting on blogs – you can post anything without actually reading the article.

Glass houses have nothing to do with it. To say she was arrested for a DUI is a fact, not a judgment.

I think it’s entirely possible, even in this day and age, to misjudge whether you’ve had too much to drink and are impaired. The availability of Uber and cabs and such is largely irrelevant; most people who DUI don’t do so because there’s no alternative available, they do it because they misjudge how badly off they are—the same impairment that affects their driving extends to their judgment. That said, there’s still no excuse. Come on, at this point, this issue has been exhaustively publicized, and we all KNOW it’s possible to misjudge your abilities after you’ve consumed alcohol, so it… Read more »

She has Motel, food costs, Taxi costs, NO car becuase he got hit in it. She is stuck, waiting for him to wake up.

She has her license now, and her probation is almost over, but what she has done to my husband and me is not over. At her plea to only get probation she stated she would love to talk with us, and we requested this only to be told by her attorney he would relate to her anything we wanted to say.

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

Heche is legally dead according to California law, although her heart is still beating she has not been taken off life support in order to allow for organ donations to take place and to find the right recipients.

Anne’s eldest son, Homer 20, said in a statement to PEOPLE on his mom’s passing:  “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Throughout her career Heche appeared on TV shows and films includingL Men in Trees, If These Walls Could TalkDonnie BrascoI Know What You Did Last SummerSix Days, Seven Nights, and Gus Van Zant’s 1998 remake of Psycho. Back in 2020, Anne became a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
