Adult performer Anna Malle, 37, died in a car accident Wednesday. Anna 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 Anna Malle’s website on 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, Anna 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 has been reported as saying that Anna “loved life. She was a kind and generous person. She was great to her fans and overall, just a really great person.”

Nina Hartley remembers Anna Malle…..

Nina writes on Nina.com:
I’ve known Anna and Hank since they were amateurs in Florida. She visited me and my ex-husband when we lived in Marina del Rey and we gave the two of them all the advice we could. The play was good, too. She and my ex shared a birth date, which made their connection all the nicer. I liked her right away. She was all Virgo: passionate and opinionated, with a very big heart behind it all.She was beautiful, energetic, horny, smart, fiesty and very down to earth. She loved Hank fiercely and he was always there for her.

She was also invaluable in my Guides to Anal Sex and Swinging, since she was an enthusiastic practitioner of both activities. I think she and Hank really sold it to regular couples, as I’ve gotten good reviews for that tape ever since. We did a lot at the Lifestyles convention in Vegas for a few years in a row, and then she really took off as the Queen of the Swing Scene as I scaled back my involvement due to the unraveling of my first marriage. We made a great pair; blonde/brunette, buxom/slender. Between the two of us a guy would bound to find something he liked!

…We met up again at one of the Lifestyles conventions in Las Vegas, she and Hank taking notes on how to use the business instead of it using her. How proud they were when they had earned enough in only a couple of years to buy a home in Las Vegas. She always gave the best parties at the East Coast Video Show in Atlantic City, I’ll tell you that!

I used Anna in her first feature in VCA’s ‘The Secret Life of Nina Hartley’ in a hot jailcell threesome, she was great. And I thought about her great performances in two of my earlier Guides, “Swinging” and “Anal Sex,’ and how good she was in them and how sparkling our chemistry. She was dark, beautiful, mysterious, unpretentious, sinewy and horny and just enough submissive. In short, a perfect partner for me. Between the two of us, we had something for everyone.

She had the best cheekbones, courtesy of her Native American heritage, and a fierce yet playful twinkle in her eye. She loved Hank just as fiercely. At her first ever CES (yes, back when it still WAS the CES), at the Sahara Hotel in Vegas, she was signing autographs in a cramped booth. The semi-slimy company owner asked her if she’d like Hank to leave the booth to give her some space. Without a moment’s hesitation she snapped at him, “Hank IS my space.” I loved that line and admire what it represents.

My heart goes out to Hank at this sad and terrible time.

Anna, you’ll be sorely missed, my dear. Thank you for all you shared with me.
