While on his way to a route on the morning of September 12, 2017, Matt came upon a truck turned over on its top. It was a tractor-trailer carrying compress natural gas. Without regard for his own safety, Matt pulled over and ran up to the truck to see if he could help the driver.

The driver was somewhat alert but disoriented. The driver's side of the truck had been crushed so Matt helped him climb out of the back window. Matt brought him away from the wrecked truck to safety in the back of his company truck. He then called for help on the radio and advised of the accident and help needed. For his heroic actions I would like to recommend Matthew Steele for the IBEW Life Saving award.
