Mitchell regained consciousness during the ambulance ride to the hospital, and despite being in intensive care is "awake and in good spirits," the website reported.

Mitchell, 71, was born in Canada and emerged as a popular folk musician in the United States during the 1960s, establishing herself in the southern California music scene.
