ST. FRANCISVILLE - A West Feliciana man was killed when a tree fell on his truck Saturday just before noon.

Deputies say a pecan tree fell onto the vehicle of Danny Daniel, 64, in St. Francisville. Daniel and another man were driving away in the truck when the tree landed lengthwise on the vehicle. Daniel's side of the cab was crushed and he was pronounced dead on the scene. The other man was not injured.

Daniel was arrested earlier this month on a malfeasance charge. He was an Angola officer who was accused of inappropriate behavior with an inmate.

The sheriff's office says he was a distant cousin of Sheriff J. Austin Daniel.
