A motorcyclist was killed after he was hooked and pulled off his bike by a dangling TSTT cable in Cunupia.
According to a Trinidad Express report, the incident occurred last night, along a road at Jerningham Junction.
Police reportedly say the line was pulled down earlier by a truck and a resident tied a piece of white cloth to alert passers-by.
Ronnie Samuel apparently did not see it and died at the scene.
The article reports that TSTT issued a statement today saying “it is investigating the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the incident in which Samuel was injured and subsequently succumbed to his injuries”.
Also, the company reportedly extended condolences to the family of the deceased.
