First look at Steve Utash since beating in Detroit

(WXYZ) - The family of Steve Utash is releasing a picture of him since the brutal beating that left him hospitalized in April.

The 54-year-old was attacked by an angry mob after he accidently hit a young boy with his vehicle on Detroit’s east side.

Utash can be seen standing with his arms around his two daughters who are all smiles over his amazing progress.

The family says there have been a lot of people praying for Utash and they believe that helped in his recovery so far.

His daughter told 7 Action News, “He’s doing better.  He is independent and his memory is coming back.  We are thankful he is okay.”

While he is doing a lot better, he still has a way to go before a full recovery.

He is expected to be released from the hospital  soon and will undergo therapy.
