Firefighters used a TAC Stick® or similar AC current-sensing device to detect live AC power at the crash scene (Google Search TAC Stick®/Demo video below).

The Will-Burt TAC Stick, apparently detects AC power sources from as far as 150 meters. It’s reported to be a very useful tool when you operate around power lines, or in electrical fires. It can warn you if a downed power line gets re-energized, for example. YouTube Tips ⓘ
