North Lincoln Fire & Rescue firefighter Matt Miller has been discharged from the hospital. “I have been so blessed by all the love and support of family and friends,” Miller said. “Just finished day four of recovery and the big concerns have been resolved. Chest tube was taken out, brain bleed stabilized and all fractures remain with no need of any type of splint or brace. “I was released to go home today which has been so nice! I have some follow up appointments that include rehabilitation from post concussion symptoms. There is a long way to go but today was a big step in the right direction.” Miller was involved in an accident at approximately 8 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 22 and Perrydale Road between Lincoln City and Salem, NLFR said in a Facebook post published at 12:45 a.m. Friday. Dallas Fire & Rescue responded to the incident and extricated Miller from his car and transported him to Salem Hospital.
