      Injured deputy, wife reunited at Portland hospital

      EUGENE, Ore. - The Lane County couple seriously injured in a hit-and-run while on vacation in Mexico have been reunited at a Portland hospital.

      According to a Facebook page kept up by close friends, Michelle Wattier was transported to Portland over the weekend and got to see her husband Drew for the first time since the November 30, 2012, crash.

      Drew Wattier, a Lane County Sheriff's deputy, was transferred to the Portland facility from San Diego in December.

      Many local companies and groups have been raising and donating money to help the couple with their medical bills.
