After being comatose for 16 days, the ‘Orange is the New Black’ star, Michelle Hurst, has finally waked up according to recent news reports.

Hurst was placed in medically induced coma after incurring major injuries from a serious car accident that occurred just before the holidays. The procedure was done for the purpose of preventing any movement from the actress while doctors perform surgeries near her spine.

Fortunately, the procedure was successful since she has finally opened her eyes and slowly showing progress, the reports said.

As of this writing, Hurst is still at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in Chapel Hill, N.C.

Meanwhile, reports claimed that an organization has set up a fundraising web page for Hurst to help her with her hospital bills. Also, her other co-stars in ‘Orange is the New Black’ drama series like Natasha Lyonne and Matt McGorry are using social media to ask their fans and followers to cast their donations to her cause.

Recent reports have it that the donations have actually reached a total of $12,256 as of January, 17.

So far, details surrounding the actress’ car crash are still unclear. Thus, several attorneys from our Los Angeles injury law firm hope for fast and successive recovery of the actress so that authorities can soon determine who is to blame for the incident.
