LPD Officer Injured in Off-Duty accident

This is the OFFICIAL fundraising page for the Laredo Police Department Officer who was seriously injured in an auto-pedestrian accident February 4, 2023. 

Officer Cantu, J. is in critical condition following an auto-pedestrian accident on Sunday morning. According to Laredo Police, the accident happened at around midnight Sunday near McPherson and Sterling Loop.

He was transported from the crash scene to an area hospital and then transported to a hospital in San Antonio where he remains hospitalized in serious but stable condition.

He is expected to undergo multiple medical procedures to treat his extensive injuries, but the road to rehabilitation will be long and arduous, and the effects of his injuries will be life-altering

As with any medical emergency, anyone can understand the emotional, physical, and financial strain emergencies can place upon the injured party, as well as his family. 

Along with thoughts and prayers, any financial contribution anyone is able to make will be truly appreciated.

ALL monies raised by myself (Joshua’s niece) will be directly transferred to his mother Diana Contreras from GoFundMe and will be used for his medical expenses and medical equipment he may need on his road to recovery. 

From Joshua’s family,

Thank you
