Galliano man killed in Friday morning crash

Galliano man killed in Friday morning crash


Shortly before 11:30 Friday morning, Troopers with Troop C responded to a two-vehicle fatality crash on LA 3235 at West 134th Street. The crash took the life of 69-year-old Oliver Danos.

The preliminary investigation revealed Danos was traveling west on West 134th in a 2003 Mercury Sable. As he reached LA 3235 and entered the intersection, a 2016 Toyota Tacoma driven by 58-year-old Mitchell Miguez of Harvey, approached from the south. Danos’ vehicle was struck by the Tacoma and despite being properly restrained, he suffered fatal injuries.

Miguez was properly restrained and was not injured.

This is the first fatal crash of 2020 that Troop C has investigated.
