Jimi Heselden, the multi-millionaire owner of Segway Inc., which makes the famous Segway personal transport system, died Sunday in a tragic accident involving a Segway personal transport system. He plunged 80 feet into a limestone river near his home.
Heselden's net worth was estimated at around £166 million. He bought Segway Inc. last December.
Dean Kamen invented the Segway, which debuted in 2001 and took the world by storm-- though it's also provided all manner of snark bait.
