Here’s the scoop from TMZ:

“Orange Is the New Black” star Michelle Hurst — who plays Miss Claudette on the show — has just awakened from a medically-induced coma … after suffering serious injuries in a recent car accident.

According to Hurst’s family, the accident occurred just before the holidays and Hurst was placed in the 16-day coma so doctors could perform surgeries close to her spine.

Hurst is currently recovering in the ICU at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.

Details surrounding the accident are unclear.

We wish Ms. Claudette all the best. She’s one of the most intriguing members of the cast, who gives a unique perspective of what it is like for older women to stuck in prison or jail.
