DeGeneres, 64, was approached on Monday by a Daily Mail photographer in Santa Barbara, California, who asked about Heche’s condition.
“We don’t communicate with each other, so I wouldn’t know,” DeGeneres replied before adding, “I don’t want anyone to get hurt.”
“It was a pretty dangerous accident that happened, wasn’t it?” asked the cameraman.
“Sure,” DeGeneres said as she got into her car.
