Reserve Deputy Receives a Big Donation

Donations are pouring in for a Nacogdoches County Reserve Deputy. Ben Curtis and his wife were nearly killed by a drunk driver.

The Curtis Family has received a $5,000 check from the Fleetwood Memorial Foundation. The Arlington-based company helps support law enforcement agents and their families when the officer is killed or seriously hurt in the line of duty.

Curtis was responding to a call July 22nd when a drunk driver crashed into his patrol car. Curtis' wife was in the car with him. Both are expected to be hospitalized for several more weeks.
