Injured L-P Teacher Released From ICU

Posted by wlpo on August 11, 2013

The long road to recovery continues for L-P math teacher Matt Makeever.

According to family members, the 25-year old was released from the intensive care unit last Thursday at St. Francis Medical Center.  He continues with physical therapy, he’s able to read now and mess around with a cellphone.  Makeever is also completely off a ventilator.

He’s been at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria since July 20th when he was hit in the left side of his head by part of a train along 1st Street in La Salle.  Makeever underwent successful facial reconstruction surgery last Monday.

A substitute teacher has taken over Makeever’s duties at L-P.
