Pedestrian Succumbs to Injuries in Jefferson Parish Crash
Metairie – Shortly before 9:00 p.m. last night, Troopers with Troop B responded to a fatality crash involving a pedestrian on Airline Highway near Shrewsbury Rd. The crash took the life of 52-year-old Daniel Rivera of Covington.

The preliminary investigation revealed Rivera was walking in a southbound direction across Airline Highway. As he entered the center of the southbound travel lanes, he was struck by a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox. Rivera suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased on scene.

The driver of the Equinox was properly restrained with no injuries. Impairment on the part of Rivera is suspected and a standard toxicology report is pending through the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office. The driver of the Chevrolet provided a breath sample which showed no alcohol present. This crash remains under investigation and no further information is available at this time.

Troopers urge pedestrians to maintain a heightened level of awareness while walking near the road. Simple precautions such as wearing reflective materials, avoiding distractions, and walking a safe distance from travel lanes while facing oncoming traffic could help prevent many pedestrian related crashes.

Troopers would also like to take this opportunity to remind motorists that making good choices, such as never driving while impaired and ensuring every occupant is properly restrained, can often be the key to preventing and surviving serious crashes.
