Utility contractor Atlantic Coast Utilities/Advanced Utilities Inc has been fined $1.3m following an incident that led to the deaths of two workers at a Boston dig site earlier this year.

The incident, which occurred on 24 February 2021, saw two workers, Jordy Alexander Castaneda Romero, 27, and Juan Carlos Figueroa Gutierrez, 33, struck by a truck and pushed into a nine-foot-deep trench, prompting a review of the contractor’s health-and-safety procedures.
