GRANGER, Ind. (AP) — The funeral for Indiana Republican U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski will be held next week in her home state of Indiana, where she and three other people were killed in a head-on highway collision.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Granger Community Church, Palmer Funeral Homes said on its website.

A visitation will be held at the church on Wednesday from noon until 7 p.m.

Walorski, who was 58, was in an SUV with two members of her staff on Wednesday when it crossed the median of a northern Indiana highway for unknown reasons and collided with an oncoming vehicle near the town of Wakarusa, the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Office said.

Walorski, her 27-year-old staffer Zachery Potts of Mishawaka, who was driving, and her 28-year-old communications director, Emma Thomson of Washington, D.C., all died, as did the woman who was driving the vehicle struck by their SUV.

Potts was Walorski’s district director and the Republican chairman for northern Indiana’s St. Joseph County.

Walorski, 58, was first elected to represent northern Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District in 2012 and was seeking reelection this year to a sixth term in the solidly Republican district. Walorski was among the House Republicans who voted against certifying the Arizona and Pennsylvania electoral votes for President Joe Biden following the Capitol insurrection.

The 53-year-old, who's said to be in a "stable" condition in hospital, was filmed speeding down a quiet suburban street in Mar Vista.

Moments later, the Hollywood star crashed into a two-story home nearby.

Emergency crews pulled Heche out of the car and rushed her to hospital, the fire department read.

No one else was hurt and it's unclear if anyone was inside the home at the time.

Other footage showed the crash site cordoned off by police tape and charred items believed to belong to the vehicle in the driveway and side walk.

Dramatic photos of the wreckage show her mangled vehicle being towed after Anne was dragged out of the flaming car by firefighters.

The 53-year-old was seen squirming in agony on a stretcher before she was rushed to hospital after the smash at around 11am.

The outlet obtained shocking video footage of her appearing to speed down a residential street in her blue BMW Mini Cooper moments before the devastating smash.

The actress can reportedly be heard ploughing into a garage of an apartment complex, while residents rushed to her aid.

But Anne instead ignored their attempts to help and put the car in reverse before zooming off again, onlookers claimed.

One witness took a snap of the star, dressed in ripped jeans and a pink tank top, behind the wheel of her damaged motor.

She then careered through a hedge and rammed into a nearby home before her wrecked Mini Cooper burst into flames.

The blaze "was significant and engulfed the house", sending smoke billowing down the street.

And some 59 firefighters were left battling the "stubborn flames" for 65 minutes, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Law enforcement said the 53-year-old "suffered burns in the fire", leaving her clothing and hair "charred".

LAFD Capt. Erik Scott said: "We really had a multifaceted incident here.

"We had a significant traffic collision, we had entrapment of a woman inside that, we had a car that erupted into fire, and then we had a home that had significant fire that is red-tagged.

"It's at this point destroyed."
