Email

 A truck driver beaten unconscious by a Detroit mob when he tried to assist a child he accidentally hit with his pickup nine days ago has begun to regain consciousness and is breathing on his own, his daughter said on Friday.

Steve Utash, 54, has been taken off a ventilator and is starting to speak, his daughter said in a post on GoFundMe, a crowdfunding website where more than $161,000 has been raised to help pay for Utash's medical bills.
