T&TEC Backs Out Leaving THA's DIPU Responsible for Tyrone Crawford Deaths

The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) is not responsible for the electrical infrastructure on the compound of the Tobago House of Assembly’s Division of Infrastructure and Public Utilities (DIPU) in Scarborough, Tobago, where 34-year-old Tyrone Crawford was electrocuted earlier this week.

Crawford, a lorry loader, and a father of two died when the cab of the truck he was touching came into contact with an electrical ground wire at the DIPU.

In a release yesterday, T&TEC stated that preliminary investigations into Tuesday’s incident revealed that the electrical infrastructure where the incident occurred belongs to the DIPU and that all overhead lines and poles on the compound are private property and therefore the responsibility of the DIPU.
