Latest Condition On L-P Teacher Who Was Hit By A Train

Posted by wlpo on July 24, 2013

Good news in the case of Matthew Makeever, the 25-year old math teacher from LP who was hit by a train on Saturday.

In a Facebook post, L-P officials say Makeever is becoming more active, although he’s still hospitalized and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.  He’s still not fully awake as his brain continues to heal, but he has safely passed the critical 72-hour mark for brain injuries.

The Makeever family greatly appreciates all the support they have received.  If you would like to join the L-P family in wishing Makeever well, you can send E-Cards through the St. Francis Medical Center website.
