Retired cop dies

By Joan Rampersad Monday, June 16 2014

Retired Police Inspector Linton McIntosh, 62, of Enterprise, Chaguanas was killed by his own car on the Churchill Roosevelt Highway yesterday.

Chief investigator Cpl Joseph Rogers, of the St Joseph Police Station, told Newsday at about 8.45 am yesterday, McIntosh was driving a Toyota Corolla Axio, HCY 7343, west along the Churchill Roosevelt Highway, just having passed the interchange, when, owing to some diesel on the roadway, his vehicle picked up a skid and came into contact with the median that separates the east bound and west bound lanes.

Rogers stated that further information indicated McIntosh got out of his car to determine the damage done to his vehicle which was facing north.

While standing on the western side of the car, a gold coloured Nissan Navara, driven by a member of the Trinidad and Tobago Air Guard, was proceeding west and also picked up a skid. The Navara struck the right front of McIntosh’s vehicle, causing it to spin around and hit McIntosh who was thrown approximately 30 feet south west of the point of impact.

Christian Charlerie, 19, and his mother Natalie Douglas, 35, who were in the Navara had to be hospitalised and remain in stable condition at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope. The Air Guardsman was not injured and continues to assist the police.

Rogers said the police got reports of four other accidents, with all drivers complaining about losing control when they hit that “diesel spot”, resulting in major damage to the vehicles.

Up until about 1.30 pm yesterday, fire officers from the San Juan and Port-of-Spain Fire Stations were still at the scene using cleaning agent and power washing the highway in the vicinity of the accident.
