SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A teacher who has been in a coma since she was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in Scottsdale last month has opened her eyes and is able to communicate.

ABC15 (KNXV-TV) reports (https://bit.ly/1O5I5Ae ) that Maureen Brown has been in the intensive care unit since she was hit. She has endured more than a dozen surgeries to repair her arms, legs and other injuries to the right side of her body.
