Back to School After Being Hit by Drunk Driver, “Truly a Miracle”


(New 4 Tucson) – University of Arizona students went back to school Wednesday. This semester includes one student who is back on campus after a full year off.

After being in a coma for 23 days, many surgeries and countless hours of physical therapy, Ashley Murray is back on campus. She and her family say it is truly a miracle.

In December of 2017, Murray was home for the holidays in California. She was out with friends and got in an Uber to go home, but reports say a drunk driver hit the Uber she was in.

“I was in the hospital for like six months – 178 days,” Murray said. “I had like 11 surgeries. I had to relearn how to talk.” CONTINUE
