Anne is currently in hospital and reportedly in a coma following the accident.

"No, have not," Ellen said. "We’re not in touch with each other, so I wouldn’t know."

However, she did send well wishes, saying, "I don’t want anyone to be hurt."

"It was quite a dangerous accident that happened, wasn't it?" the photographer asked, to which Ellen replied, "Sure was."
