LAS VEGAS - Adult performer Anna Malle died in a car accident Wednesday. She was 37. Malle was not driving the car, and the accident was not alcohol-related.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reported that Malle suffered fatal injuries in a crash on Route 160 just west of Rainbow Boulevard around 11:44 a.m.
The report went on to say that Malle was a passenger in a westbound Dodge Stratus that appeared to be attempting a U-turn when it entered the eastbound traffic lane and was broadsided by a pickup.
As was reported by Malle’s Website Wednesday, "…with deep sadness I have to announce that Anna has passed away today in an auto accident. She will be missed by all and has always enjoyed her life to the fullest. I'm sure that her memory will always be with her fans and friends. For all of you please say a prayer to her and let her know that she was loved.”
Born and raised in Iowa, Malle got her start in the adult industry with Tim Lake and Homegrown Video, in 1994. The black-haired starlet quickly established herself as an intense, intelligent performer with exotic looks, and went on to perform and direct in over 300 titles. Malle also acted as an editor for Fox magazine for six years.
Malle is survived by her husband, performer Hank Armstrong, who was not involved in the accident. Armstrong told AVN.com that Anna “loved life. She was a kind and generous person. She was great to her fans and overall, just a really great person.”
