NORTH BERGEN – Police officers and community members have donated thousands of dollars to a funeral fund for a township police officer who died in a weekend crash on his way to work.
As of Monday afternoon, more than $ 31,000 had been raised to help the family of North Bergen police officer Julio Noriega put the 28-year-old to rest.
Noriega was pronounced dead at a local hospital following Saturday morning’s crash in North Bergen involving Noriega’s personal Honda and a garbage truck.
The accident near the intersection of 41st Street and Avenue Tonnelle also started a fire.
As of Monday, no further details were released on the potential factors behind the collision.
Noriega worked for the department from 2015 as a communications officer, before being sworn in as an agent in January 2019.
