Segway firm owner dies in freak accident involving, you guessed it, a Segway

Jimi Heselden, the owner of the Segway company, died on Sunday in a freak accident after he drove the off-road version of the two-wheeled machine off a cliff on his property in North Yorkshire. The UK multimillionaire was inspecting his property when he drove his Segway off a cliff and into a river. Police do not suspect foul play at this moment.
