She Suffered Major Trauma In A Recent Car Accident

  Michelle Hurst, who plays Miss Claudette on Orange Is the New Black, awakens from a 16-day medically induced coma following a car crash over the holidays.   Hurst underwent major trauma, which forced doctors to place her into a coma so that they could perform surgeries close to her spine.   Hurst is currently responsive and recovering in the ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.   Members of the Orange Is the New Black cast have taken their support to Twitter to help raise money to pay for her medical bills. So far, co-stars Uzo Aduba and creator and showrunner Jenji Kohan have made contributions to the donation website, which has raised almost double its  $5,000 goal.   Source: theurbandaily, Image:   @sara-leerowe
